Guest Artist: Karla Endris + Embossing with Thinlits

Look at this beautiful display that Karla Endris created for Spring Into Stamping! I love how she displayed her sample cards. Karla demonstrated how to emboss with thinlits, a technique she said was inspired by fellow demonstrator France Martin.
Here's a close-up of some of the cards. She used thinlits to create a "dry emboss" look -- essentially pressing them into the cardstock without cutting.
Embossing With Thinlits

1. (Optional) Ink up the ridged side of the thinlit.
2. Place the thinlit ink side down on a piece of cardstock.
3. From bottom to top, layer the pieces in your Big Shot: Magnetic Platform, Crease Pad, Cardstock, Thinlit, Crease Pad. (Essentially, you replace the cutting pads with crease pads.)
4. The Thinlit will not cut through the crease pad! Use the embossed piece on your card. You can add color by to the images with an AquaPainter or Blender Pen.
