Technique Tuesday - Dry Embossing

I hope everyone is ready to try a new technique today.  Several weeks ago a friend brought a card over and showed me this wonderful technique with dry embossing. 

Supplies Needed:  card front, desired shapes, embossing folder, embosser and desired embellishments

I started out by cutting out several card fronts and using my circle punches in several sizes for my shapes. 

Simply glue down your desired shape to the card front.  I did several at once to make multiple cards.

Dry emboss the card front with the embossing folder of your choice.

I added some ribbon, sentiment and of course the darling "Duckling" image to finish off this simple card.

I hope you enjoy this technique.  Please stop by and share your new projects.   Don't forget there is still time to enter our current challenge.
