The hobby and indeed the business of hand crafted greeting cards have gained popularity in recent years and many people now create their own greetings cards for family and friends. Many others have been able to build a business selling hand crafted greetings cards too. One of the popular items that are used for creating greetings cards is embossing powder. This is used to add elegant and dimension to a stamped image on a card. Embossing powder can also be used in different crafts such as scrap booking. You can make up individual pictures and use embossing powder on them in all kinds of colours and finishes.
To use embossing powder you will also need a heat tool/embossing gun, when heat is applied underneath the image that has had embossing powder applied it will change colour and will go shiny or sparkly depending on the type of embossing powder you have applied to the image. Embossing powder can be purchased in lots of different sizes and a little does go a long way. If you are looking for a supplier of embossing powder then contact your craft supplier to see if they can supply you with the embossing powder that you need for your project.
You can now even get scented embossing powder that is a nice touch to a personalised card such as a cinnamon scented embossing powder for a Christmas greeting card as this smell more often than not evokes memories of Christmas cooking smells. How about a coffee scented embossing powder for a coffee lover? Or a sea breeze scented embossing powder applied to a card that you are sending to a sea faring relative or friend or a friend or relative that just loves the beach and sea.
If you go to an online search engine such as Bing or Yahoo or Google and type in ’embossing powder’ it will return hundreds of websites that specialise in embossing powder for crafters. Take a look through some of the websites to see if you can find some of the embossing powders that you need for your projects.
