Dry Embossing with Acrylic Borders

Hi Everyone and happy Monday.  Today I want to share with you a fun project I made using the Garden Border acrylic embellishment to both emboss and mask a tag.  Of course, you could use this technique on almost any project.

To dry emboss the tag I used my Sizzix Machine.  For the sandwich you will being with the multi-purpose platform, your acrylic cutting plate, and your tag or other paper project.  You can see the "sandwich" in this photo.

On top of the tag place you will place the silicone rubber pad (some people have had luck with a plummers pad) and finally your impressions pad.  Run this through the machine.  Again, I have added a photo to help you form the sandwich.


 Here you can see the tags once they went through the machine.  Lovely, aren't they?

I then used the border as a mask.  A few pieces of washi tape hold the border in place while I add random bits of my favorite mists.

 Finally, lots of lovely embellishment to complete the look.


I love the texture of the tag as well as the masked section.  Best thing is, I still have the border so I can do it again and again...or use the border on a scrapbook page or other project.
