The latest Make-It-Monday challenge (mim6) was all about partial embossing using PTI’s impression plates.
I wanted to do something a little different, so I went for embossing the middle of a panel. This is the reverse of the frame embossing that got popular awhile ago (like this one). I chose to use the Moroccan Motifs plate because it goes so well with the Fillable Frames #10 shape.
My sandwich was: clear plate, impression plate, cardstock, chipboard shim, tan mat (not pictured, sorry), clear plate. I created the chipboard shim from a piece of that cardboard that comes in DSP packs. I cut it to the size I needed (in this instance 2 x 5.5).
I added an embossed line at the top to help delineate my debossing. Now this isn’t fool-proof – you’ll notice a little extra debossing above my line…I’ll have to play a little more to figure that out. Even still, I’m pretty stoke about this new option for my impression plates.
Thanks for stopping by!
