Thursday Tutorial with Michelle

Hi! Today I found my Cri-Kit embosser in a box of crafting supplies that was "unearthed" during a clean-up of my storage shed. I did make a project with it! Cri-Kit has such great products, and I'm going to order the mat to make my life easier when I want to emboss vellum. Here is the link to the Cri-Kit site. Take a look-







I used the wide tip on the embosser to create this tree from the Christmas cartridge. I did use an embossing mat from Spellbinders to put under the metal I used. I taped both of them to the mat so nothing would shift.  A paper piercer was used to add the star brad at the top, and regular crafting scissors to cut the tree from the metal sheet. The metal is so thin, its easy to cut. It was hard trying to show the embossing detail on a shiny surface.


Give this a try!

This would be a great addition to any card, mixed media project, or home decor project!
