Home Made Embossing Plate


Been seriously lacking in mojo lately but I was inspired to have a go at some homemade embossing. You can find all the details here and here at Mel Stampz. For the most part my embossing is a bit lumpy not sure if that's because I didn't follow the instructions or because of the quality of my greyboard. The circles seem to be much crisper and they're cut from some purchased greyboard (chipboard) rather than the back of a 'do not bend envelope' which is what I used for the rest of it. Have die cut some more shapes to have another go, probably at the weekend so watch this space. If you have a go come leave me a comment cos I'd love to see how it works out for you.
