Come Sit With Me - Blind Embossing

Here is an inviting card for anyone you'd like to share time with.

I love blind embossing.  My wedding invitations were blind embossed.  Never heard the term?  I guess it comes from the print industry.  It basically means dry embossing without adding any colour or foil to the embossing.   It must be the subtlety which draws me in.

I suppose you might say this technically isn't a blind embossed card, but the elements on it are.  Ahem, I did give the park bench a little helping hand with some sponging!

Instructions: (supplies listed below)
  1. Die cut Spellbinders Architectural Accents and Garden Bench from cream coloured cardstock. Sponge bench with Distress Antique Linen
  2. Use Oasis Green VersaMagic to stamp Come Sit by Me, centered, 1-1/4" from the bottom edge of the card front.
  3. Use Tombow 3D Foam Tabs to adhere the bench and the long solid Architectural Accent as shown.
  4. Use Glue Dots to adhere the floral Architectural Accent to the card front as shown.

Gosh, that was easy!  Never underestimate blind embossing - it's so easy and fast with Spellbinders. I don't mean to sound like a commercial but it's so true!  And it's so classy.

Thanks for having a look!

  1. WOW! This is a stunner! Must give this a try! TFS!

  2. Lovely :) I've been thinking I need that garden bench…love the accent pieces, too. Sigh. Too many wants, not enough wallet!

  3. What ever you call it, it's lovely!!

  4. Never heard the term but the results are beautiful!

  5. So much easier than cutting your own stencil and embossing. Leave you more time to create! Beautiful touch with color on the bench.
