  5. This is so elegant, Karen! I would never have thought to emboss an entire bit of paper. Great technique!! It really does look like metallic paper!

  6. Like the gold metal look. Not thought to use Kraft paper & gold embossing powder. I've done heat embossing, dry embossing & started by embossing with a lightbox, stylus & template.

  27. This looks awesome. Love the metallic effect. Never thought of using the two techniques like this. I'm new to embossing (JUST got a Cuttlebug this week), so I will definitely have to give this a try!

    Thanks!
