Embossed Greeting Cards!

 

A couple years back I was really into making greeting cards.  In fact, I opened a business selling my amazing greeting cards.  All of my cards were made with Lasting Impressions embossing templates!  Have you ever seen their templates?  They are sooo cute! 

I had a great time making them, but a salesperson I am NOT, so unfortunately my card business didn’t last too long!  I believe in trying things, even when you may not succeed! 

To emboss greeting cards you will need: an embossing template, a light box, an embossing tool and paper.  To start, place your template on your light box (turn light on) then put paper over your template and trace along the inside of the template with your embossing tool using a light pressure!  You will now have a raised (embossed) design!  Nothing to it, huh?  Next distress the raised edges of design so the embossing shows up better.  After that cut out your design and embellish your greeting card. 

Here are a few of my favorites that I have made!

What do you think?  Cute, huh?  They are so much fun to make and you can be really creative with how you embellish your cards!  Give greeting cards a try using embossing templates.  You will never have to buy another greeting card again!

  4. Hi Tara. Do you have any desire to have some of your cards displayed on the Lasting Impressions' Blog? While many of these templates are now discontinued (as well as some of the papers), your ideas are adorable and I think they will inspire others to emboss. Please e-mail me at LUV2EMBOSS@aol.com if you are interested and please visit the L.I. Blog and get back to embossing! With joy, :-) Donna
