Faux Embossing Tutorial with Shaunte Wadley

Sorry we are a bit late with our post today but we have been busy!

I organized all of the address and prizes today so we are are good to go! Hard Core Prizes should ship within the next week so be on the look out for those.

And don’t forget about our Design Team Call for Cardmakers! You DO NOT want to miss this!!!

Core’dinations is so generous and our team is THE BEST. They create such cool projects like this one that Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley created for us today for our Tuesday Tutorial. If you love Tim Holtz KRaft Core than this is the one for you.

First up, run a die through your cutting machine. It doesn’t have to be a twelve inch die…this technique will work with any size die.  BUT we do have this FABULOUS 2.25″x12″ Sizzix/Tim Holtz Kraft Core that is the PERFECT size to do use your 12″ dies!

The key is using the same cardstock as the base as seen here.

Now sand. Make sure you use your Sand It Gadget!

See how they “match”. By sanding both the base and the die and then layering them, you are creating dimension.

Now adhere the layers and you can see how they look embossed!

Dies are from Lifestyle Crafts.

    Ok I did not read the steps so carefully until after my comment. That is a great faux embossing. I also read the story on the page and loved it. I think we can all relate to that one.
