Quick Tip Tuesday - Embossed Fabric

Hello everyone and welcome to Quick Tip Tuesday!  For today's quick tip, I was inspired by a wedding I attended this weekend.  So I decided to give embossing fabric a try.  Wedding dresses are so beautiful and I had some white satin fabric in my fabric stash that I thought would be great to make a card with.

Here is what you need satin fabric, big shot, & die.


I layered four pieces of white satin fabric and ran it through the big shot with the scallop die.


Once your fabric is cut out and separated you give them a good coat of hair spray.  This will help stiffen the fabric up to hold the embossing.  I am sure that you could use fabric stiffener as well, but I didn't have any on hand.  


 Next, we are ready to place all four layers of fabric in the desired embossing folder.  


Run it through the big shot and this is the result you should get.  I love the shine and texture.


Here is the card I made for the wedding.   Check out my blog to learn more details on how I made it.


Be sure to come back tomorrow when we announce the Wednesday Winners.

  8. That is so elegant looking. Who would have thought. Have to give this a try. Thanks for sharing. I keep scrap fabric and now I just have to find where I put it last. I have cut fabric with my Sizzix BIGkick but not thought about embossing it.

  25. @ Rebecca M, The Big Shot or Cuttlebug should work on this technique. Good luck to those who try it out, I am still thinking of other ways to use it.
