Embossed Metallic Paper

Whoo Hoo! I found out that I can emboss Metallic PAPER! I was really impressed and so was the paper (sorry couldn't resist the pun!). I used the CRI-Kits embossing tool, and I did a multicut 4 times to get a really crisp emboss. For my first 'cut' I had the pressure at 3 and then for the next 3 'cuts' I bumped up the pressure all the way. I did the first 'cut' at a lower pressure so that I would not tear the paper. The font is from CRI-Kits as well.

Now I am wondering how well the colored metallic papers will emboss ... hmm. I am really trying to resist running to the store and starting some new project! I have 200 wedding invitations to do! I can't wait for school to start (only 2 weeks away) so that I can have all day to work on these invitations instead of just evenings!


  1. cool shelly, ive embossed metallic paper on the cuttlebug using the diamond plate folder. Its really very nice. I bought this for my cricut but havent used it yet. the font works great, i may have to invest in that one too.

  2. I love your cards! They are so simple but Oh so beautiful!! Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. OMG Shel this is AWESOME!!!
