It’s the process of creating a raised surface on paper with no ink. In the printing world, embossing can be costly. You may have seen beautiful business cards with a logo embossed or a monogram on stationery that was embossed.

I thought this idea from Lifestyle Crafts to emboss napkins was such a clever idea. You can learn more about these fun tools and products on Lifestyle Crafts Facebook page or the We R Memory Keepers Facebook page. Or for more for more detailed instructions on embossing, you can watch this instructional video.
