Embossing on Patterned Paper

Embossing on Stampin' Up! In Good Taste patterned paper - card by Helen Chapman Handmade Crafts

Hello and welcome! Today I’d like to share with you a project which involves embossing on patterned paper. This is a technique that I love to use but which people often forget about. It can be really effective – stamp large images or sentiments on fairly plain patterned paper or add your own extra patterns.

The card that I want to share is so quick and simple to make but I think the combination of wood grain, white and Early Espresso is really effective. You could, of course, step the card up if you wanted – perhaps with ribbon, embellishments, die-cuts or more stamping!

Let’s make it…

The (standard A6) card base is created from Whisper White Thick cardstock. This is followed by a layer of Early Espresso cardstock measuring 10 x 14.4 cm. Next is a layer of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper (DSP) measuring 9.5 x 13.9 cm which forms the main card front.

Onto the card front, I have heat embossed one of the large Swirly Frames and the sentiment (from the Stampin’ Up! So Sentimental Stamp Set) in white Stampin’ Emboss Powder. And that’s it! So simple!
