Embossing is the raising of letters and shapes above the surrounding (paper) surface.  The raised design casts subtle shadows, creating a 3D effect and the play of light and shadow brings a new dimension to your work.  An embossed design can stand alone or be part of a calligraphic piece, producing a sophisticated look.  The embossing technique can easily be learned.  You will make and cut re-useable templates for embossing.  Once your design has been embossed you will learn how this can be further enhanced with a touch of colour (if you like) or with further embossed decorative shapes, creating multi-layered effects.  This simple embossing technique is very versatile and well worth exploring to bring a new dimension to your work.
