How to Use Embossing in Crafting

The most significant benefit of embossing is that it adds texture and dimension to 'flat' projects. So instead of using plain cardstock as a base for crafting, have you considered what your project would look like with an embossed surface on which to build upon? Although it's not technically 3D crafting, embossing is a step in the right direction – forming patterns that stand out from the page.

How to Use Embossing in Crafting

Imagine an embossed card sitting on your mantelpiece, or flicking through the pages in your scrapbook to discover an embossed foliage design popping out of the page. This simple technique can add a truly spectacular effect to practically any papercrafting project in a matter of minutes! What’s more, it’s as versatile as it is beautiful – if cardmaking isn't your thing, why not give embossing a go in stationery-making, giftwrapping or creating bunting? It's really applicable in all forms of papercraft.

Papercraft brands constantly release new designs, providing more and more design styles and folder concepts to cater for specific cards or project types. So whether you're looking to create dimensional cards, textured scrapbook pages or any other papercrafting projects with a heightened effect, it can all be completed using an embossing machine. But it's important to note that you should always check the compatibility information for your machine before using new embossing folders.
