Dry Embossing with Stencils for a Clean and Simple Card

by Laurie Willison

Hello there! It’s Laurie here with a card showcasing one of the newest stencils from Altenew. Stencils have such a wide variety of uses to add color to your projects but they can also add texture in clean and simple ways.

The Hand-Drawn Tile Stencil is a gorgeous new stencil with so many intricate details. Using my die-cutting machine and an embossing mat, I ran the stencil through with some white cardstock. The embossed result was beautiful.

Layering the embossed panel on yellow cardstock really made the white pop. I finished the card off by stamping the blooms from Delicate Clusters, along with a sentiment from Ruffled Flowers. I cut the image down with the Halftone Squares Dies and then added a little Sunray ink blending around the edges for a soft, pretty look.

Here is a challenge for you. Grab a stencil and try dry embossing with stencils today!

Have a great day!

I love the white on white with the pop of colour! I haven’t tried dry embossing with any of my stencils yet. Will have to remember this in the future!

The embossing really takes the card up another level. The stencils seem like they wouldn’t hold up to this technique because they are so thin. Will have to try it out sometime.
