If you have embossing tools and a small collection of rubber stamps, your options for personalized stationery are virtually endless. I like to keep a supply of a variety of blank envelopes and cards in various sizes on hand (Paper-Source has the best selection!). Adding an embossed element to a plain card elevates a handwritten note. Here’s how to emboss:
Craft Heat Gun
Embossing Stamp Pad
1. Ink your stamp on your embossing pad and stamp your stationery.
2. Sprinkle embossing powder on the stamp mark and tap off the excess.
3. Hold the heat gun a few inches away from your stamped image, and move it in a circular motion to heat and melt the embossing powder. It takes about 30 seconds to melt and you will notice the powder change from dull to metallic. Allow to cool before touching.
