Embossed Edges

by Shea Marshall

Today I’d like to share one of my favorite ways to add a little something extra to a card or paper project. Do you ever assemble the components and think something’s missing but you’re not sure what it is? Gold embossing powder to the rescue!

Gold Edging  1

1) You’ll need Versamark, gold embossing powder and the item you want to dress up.

2) Roll the edges of the shape in Versamark.

3) Pour a line of gold embossing powder onto a folded piece of paper. (This will help return it to the container after use. Ignore the stamped image, it’s an old piece of paper!)

4) Dip the edges of the paper shape into the powder. Heat set.

5) Voila! A little bit of extra glam for a pretty finishing touch! I couldn’t resist and embossed the edge of the base layer as well. Try it with silver!

    Wow, what a sweet idea! Simple, yet really elegant. I will definitely be using this fabulous idea, and like Joanna says, you can use “any” color, but boy, that gold is really something else! Thanks for sharing, it sure took the card up several notches, AND with the background panel done, also, is brilliant! Keep the ideas coming, I am loving them!
