Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good Morning! Today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions asked me to show you a "project".  Today it will be embossing without an embossing folder.

Here are the few supplies:
1. a score board
2. embossing tool
3. 3.5 x 5.25 piece of cardstock

First make a small mark at the bottom of scoring board at the 3 mark - this will help in the scoring process for this pattern.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment close to the bottom of the first piece of cardstock and made a score line above it.  Then placed the cardstock at an angle with the tip at the 3 inch mark - here is where the small mark at the bottom will help line it up straight.  Then score every .25 (1/4 inch mark), turn and repeat on the other side - being careful not to go past the line above the sentiment.

This is what the cardstock should look like half done.

Here are two patterns made just by turning the cardstock.  This type of scoring can be finished in just a few short minutes.
Here are two finished cards using this technique

The first sentiment is called Warm Memories and the other card has the Happy Birthday sentiment and Small Butterfly from the Summer Series.

Give this technique a try and see what kind of pattern you can make - it's so easy and takes just a few short minutes.

Have a happy stamping day!
