Toolbox Tuesday - Dry Embossing / Cuttebugging

31 Days of Holiday Cards Continue!

I love my Cuttlebug, but I don't use it enough. With all the great themed embossing folders available now, it is easy to make a great card in minutes. Sizzix also has dry emboss folders which I have used and there are many brands of embossing templates and plates for a number of different dry emboss techniques.

Quick Tip: to give a bit more zing to your embossing, sand it or drag ink across the top to help further define the embossing.

For my second cuttlebugged card, I wanted to keep the looks soft so I left the dry embossing "au naturale".
