Center Fade Embossed Backgrounds with Kristina Werner

Hello, all! Kristina here with a fun idea for background stamps! In today’s video, I show how to create a center fade embossed background. It’s simple and you don’t need any extra tools to get a great result.

For my first card, I used gold embossing powder on Midnight cardstock from Concord and 9th with the Spring Flowers Background stamp. The greeting was die cut multiple times using the You’re Simple the Best die set for stacking, with the top layer embossed in gold.

My second card was even more simple since it’s a one-layer card! I used rose gold embossing powder on Ballet Slipper cardstock from Concord & 9th with the Sweet Garden Background stamp. The greeting in the center was stamped and embossed using the XL Greetings 2 stamp set.

Be sure to watch the video below for tips on how to get that center fade! Thanks for stopping by!
