Hey Everyone! Thought I'd pop in for a quick tutorial tonight. Embossing can be super easy and fast. Embossing adds detail & dimension to your projects. The great part is- you use your favorite stamps that you already own! I have had my heat embossing tool since Christmas 2009, but never used it. I have recently watched many tutorials and compiled the best ideas into this quick 'How-To'
Here are some awesome zebra invitations I made using Sure Cuts a Lot. I made them a while ago and forgot to share. These are the instructions. I love these!
1.) Find a good zebra print, just google zebra print or zebra background.
2.) Save it to your computer
3.) Import it into Sure Cuts A Lot using the 'AutoTrace'
4.) Size it down to the desired size.
5.) add a box to the bottom portion. Select both the box and zebra print and 'weld.'
6.) Add 2 thin boxes up the sides and a thin box on top. Weld all of the pieces together.
7.) Create a letter. Find/Make a scalloped circle. Insert the desire initial/monogram to the scallop circle. I used the font 'Curlz'
8.) Create another scallop circle of the same size & shape.
9.) Cut out the zebra print and the solid scallop circle in black, and the scallop circle w/ initial in pink.
10.) Use the same pink color for your base.
11.) Apply coordinating ribbon at the split of zebra print and the solid box.
12.) Apply the Zebra configuration & ribbon to the base.
13.) Glue the initial scallop circle to the blackscallop circle.
14.) Use a pop dot to adhere the intial scallop to the middle of the card.
