Papertrey Ink - Make It Monday #11

This week's technique comes to us from Heather Nichols - Embossing with Dies. I was working on an Easter card when the post went up. I was going to cut one of Heather's Fillable Frames, #1 to be specific, and thought I'd try the technique. I must admit it's not PTI cardstock because the sentiment is computer generated and my printer will not take their wonderful stock. So I had to play around a little. But I will try this again with PTI. I'm sure the image will be crisper and won't need extra shimming.


I think this detail shot may show the embossing better.


No need for pricey Nestabilities with this trick. Thanks Heather. I'll definitely be making more of these.

Supplies (all PTI unless otherwise indicated)
Paper: PTI White for card base, Pretty Pastels, The Paper Company White for label & egg
Stamps: Fillable Frames #1
Ink: Ocean Tides, Vintage Touch Chamomile
Dies: Fillable Frames #1, Tiny Envelope
Other: Egg graphic - Made by Janet (Etsy), Rustic Cream Button Twine, Tattered Angels Pearl Mist, Corner Chomper
