In crafting, embossing creates a huge impact and flair to your design. 

For today's tip, I'm going to show you how to build up a lovely embossed brick wall as a background for your DIY cards.

Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:

Step 1:

The things that you'll need are: foam tape, embossing powders, Versamark Ink stampacryclic block, and scissors.

Step 2:

Get your foam tape and cut out brick sized chunks. Then slowly start to build up a set of bricks on your acrylic block.

Just make sure to use the same sizes and distance as it will be critical in making a nice alternate pattern.

Step 3:

Take off the outer section of your adhesive tape which will be really sticky at first. 

You can soften it up and remove the stickiness by adding talcum powder, or just press it in until it loses its tackiness.

Step 4:

Once you're completely sure that the adhesive lost its tackiness, you can now press your Versamark Stamp all over it.

Step 5:

You can now start building your brick wall. You might have to do this in stages depending on how it's going to dry as we want the ink to remain quite wet for our next step.

Step 6:

Once you're sure that your imprints haven't lost their wetness, you can now go in with your embossing powder mixture. As for me, I chose the combination of rose gold and opaque blush. 

Just sprinkle the embossing powder mix to your bricks.

Step 7:

Look how beautiful the combination of the two embossing powders are! They really make a lovely half-rustic, half-graffiti wall.

Now that we know what look we're aiming for, continue to stamp the other bricks and embossing them until the card is fully covered.

Once done, I also adhered a thank you title to the layout to give it a lovely finish.

I really love the effect and combination of the embossing powders on my card!

You can build it up more by adding embellishments, titles (as seen above) or leave it as it is because it still looks fantastic all by itself!

There you have it! I hope you enjoyed this lovely cardmaking tip! Stay tuned for more upcoming inspiring and creative tips!
