Having fun with embossing

I came across this technique today and just had to share it.
As many of you know, the Teresa Collins Craftwell eBosser arrived not so long ago and I have really enjoyed using it.  So now is a great time to try some new embossing techniques.

Today I would like to share about embossing with glitter using embossing folders and embossing powders.

To start with use some Versa Mark ink and added it to the recessed side of your embossing folder. (this is the side where the detail is 'dug out')

Add your cardstock to the non-inked side and close your embossing folder.

Send your folder through your embossing machine

Create a mix of clear embossing powder and fine glitter - about 50/50 of each.  I used a micro-fine glitter for this.

Pour this mix over your embossed cardstock.  Shake off excess and heat set your embossing powder mix.

Create your card - very pretty!
I hope you will give this a go.

Have a great weekend of paper crafting!
