Geek Lab- Dry Embossing
Hello Hello! I don’t know about you, but certain tools in my stash collect dust. I know, shocking, right? Your appalled at my lack of usage on my tools, correct? .....yeah, I really didn’t think so.
So for my post today, I pulled one of those tools out and decided to find a new way to use it...a way to incorporate it into how a scrap and create now. The tool I chose was my Texture Boutique...an adorable little tool that sits on my shelf and collects dust ( see dust in photo below) It’s original purpose is to dry emboss card fronts or die cuts ....
.......but then I discovered something quite interesting. Dry embossing folders are the same width as my TN inserts AND they perfectly emboss a 6X6 paper...who knew? And with those revelations in hand, I dusted off my Texture Boutique and Away I went!
By embossing the strips and matching them up, I created a textured base for my insert spread. Dry embossing on a TN spread adds texture and interest without bulk. Pretty cool, right?
Grab a tool from your stash....dust it off, and see what fun things you can use it for with your kit!
Have A Lovely Day!

I own a few embossing folders and I admit I don't use them often lol Thanks for sharing this, Sara and for the reminder to use our old tools on current projects.
