We’ve recently launched a collection of new, metallic embossing powders and an embossing ink pad as part of our Making Essentials range!

Embossing powders are perfect for adding a splash of colour and texture to your makes! Unlike embossing folders, the texture is added on top of the surface of your make, instead of moulding the surface into different shapes and textures.

Not only can you add texture, but you can also create a glossy, marble effect by heating the powders!

Here’s some of our favourite ideas for using embossing powders:

Floral patterns 

Adding a metallic element to the outlines of flowers creates an eye catching design for cards and other papercraft projects.

We love designs with intertwining leaves and stalks! They look even prettier when used with metallic embossing folders.

Butterfly motif 

These eye-catching designs look amazing with metallic outlines! They are so easy to create but look really effective.

We love the idea of creating a marbled effect using embossing powders, all you have to do is add heat with a heat tool through some grease proof paper.
