Make It Monday #131: Striped Embossing

Last weeks Make it Monday was not for me, but this one is! Its called "striped embossing" and its a brain child of the brilliant Betsy Veldman. Check it out - its really cool!




You mask off part of the sentiment - or where ever you want your embossed stripes with post it notes, then sprinkle it with embossing powder, move the post it notes, repeat, until you have covered everything with embossing powder - heat it up and that is it. The only problem is that some of the embossing powder gets stuck where the sticky part of the post it note was....You kind of can see that. I did not like that part - I like my cards to be meticulous.....

I am also linking this card up with Dynamic Duos and Simons Says - Emboss it


Materials: Papertrey Cutting Garden, Papertrey Think Big Favorites

Very pretty Nelia! I was wondering about the powders getting mixed up at the post-it line. Betsy made it look SO easy. Looks great anyway...wouldn't have known it wasn't intentional.
