Emboss Resist Technique

The Emboss Resist Technique using Botanical Layers

This stamp set absolutely lends itself to the emboss resist technique.

I played around a little with the design and at first I wasn’t very happy with how the card turned out.

The issue was that due to the busyness of the emboss resist image -I needed a background that was going to let the stamp set shine.

So, I landed up sticking with the embossed theme and mounted the front panel onto an embossed background.

Let me talk you through how I made this card.

What you will need to create this emboss resist card

Thick basic white cardstock – cut 5½” x 8 ¼”. Score at 4 1/8″ -set aside.

Thick basic white cardstock – cut 5 3/8″ x 4″ (emboss this)

Basic white cardstock cut 4 7/8″ x 3½”

Strip of white/silver paper – I used the SAB July/Aug 2022 6’x’6′ paper

Silver trim

White embossing powder

Botanical Layers Stamp Set

Embossing folder – I used the 3D fern folder


Blending brush

Ink of choice – I used Pear Pizazz

How to put the card together

Using the thick white cardstock for embossing -place it in your folder of choice.

I rather liked the 3D fern folder – it carried through the whole theme of botanical leaves.

Emboss Resist Technique

Glue this embossed layer onto your card base and set aside.

Now, using your Botanical Layers stampset -choose the leaf of your choice.

Mount it onto a stamping block.

I used the stamping buddy that is now part of the embossing additions toolkit ( 159971) on pg 83 of the July-Dec 2022 catalogue.

Flick off the excess powder using the paintbrush in the same kit.

Ink up your chosen stamp using Versamark.

I stamped the leaves all over the paper in different directions to add some interest to the card.

Once I was happy -I spooned white embossing powder on the page, flicked off the excess and set it using my heat tool.

I let that dry for a few seconds.

I then used my blending brush and gently inked over Pear Pizazz over the embossed image.

Once I was happy with the outcome -I added silver trim in swirls.

I then stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in silver to keep to the elegant look of the card.

I adhered the sentiment using dimensionals.

Emboss Resist Technique

This card is so simple in its design as well as it’s elegance.

Hopefully this has inspired you to try out the emboss resist technique.

The same technique was used in a different way when I did the Joseph’s coat technique.

Until next time!
