I learned how to emboss

The lady at Paper Source showed me today.  It looks so good, i really want to do them for my invitations.  I was in there for an hour today just looking around and still haven't figured out how i want my invitations to look. too many choices!

    what kind of embossing did she show you? rubbing or heat/powder? i REALLY wanted to do heat/powder with mine, but you needed to buy specialized ink, and it wasn't going to work with any of the 4 printers i had at my disposal. so i settled for heat/powder embossed background, with print-on-vellum over it...

    she showed me the heat/powder kind.  I figured i would have to print all the text first and then do embossing. I was thinking maybe just doing a design on the poketfold cover.  I found this great peacock feather at Michaels the other day.  Another idea would be to have our names on the invites embossed.  But that may get super pricey.

    it won't be too pricey to do the names.....the highest cost would be your names in a font you like....and then the heat gun, which is only 20 bucks (be sure to use the 50% offc oupon this week to make it 10)...you use SO little powder, you wouldn't believe it....i didn't even go through one bottle (3.50 full price, even cheaper with a coupon) for heat embossing over 600 large stampings!
