So how do you do ONE sketch TWO ways….emboss it and then deboss it! It’s that easy with Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock.
Yes, it is that easy. Just flip your cardstock over (or the folder) and run it through your machine to get the same pattern but the REVERSE embossed image. SO COOL and a GREAT way to spruce up those folders. If you are new to embossing and debossing and would like more information check out our technique videos HERE. Here is more about these cards from Gail Lindner:
Recently we were given a fun card sketch and to put my spin on it, I decided to create two cards, using the same colors and design but showing a variation on a technique.
Can you spot the difference with the two cards below?
We all know that Core cardstock is PERFECT for embossing as a light sand after embossing reveals the pattern even more.
Sometimes even I forget that a flip of the cardstock, to emboss on the reverse side is debossing and you get the opposite (but equally as effective) effect.
The card below was embossed right side up.
This next card was debossed (reverse side up).
Don’t you love the effect of debossing on Whitewash Cardstock?
Another advantage of using the Whitewash Collection is that you can use the back of the card to matt with and the color matches perfectly! Love it!
Thanks for visiting and I hope I’ve inspired you to get double the use out of your embossing folders!
