Wax Paper Embossing

For the Resist This! challenge on SOF... I took some regular wax paper that you use in the kitchen to do a resist on glossy paper. I took the wax paper on some of the pieces and ran them through the Cuttlebug embossing folder. After I finished using the embossed wax paper for the resist I thought the embossed wax paper looked like vellum.

I decided to use two of the embossed wax paper sheets. I colored on the reverse side in the embossed surface on one. On the other I tried to brush my versamark ink pad on the raised surface and heat emboss.

I am sharing a card I made from the heat emboss technique.

The recipe on this was so simple. I did cuttlebug emboss the wax paper and the brown carstock it is mounted on. I heat embossed with enchanted gold embossing powder after I smeared versamark on the ridges. I also heat embossed my butterfly to match.

  • Verses - Sentiment
  • Gems - K and CO
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Textured Textile
  • Blue Moon - Lost Charms
  • Ribbon - Michael's
