Just earlier Christmas, I invested in an embossing stamp tool on eBay [search metal stamping kit and yous’ll discover a range that average around £8 – £13].  I beloved stamp projects in addition to have got used them in stationery together with food crafts [not at the same time, don’t worry].

For presents concluding twelvemonth, I personalised some menu wallets picked upwards inwards the sales for gift cards together with it was much simpler as well as less scary than I idea it would live. 

Whаt I Uѕеd:
Mеtаl Punсh Stаmр Kіt
Fаbrіс Cаrd Wаllеt

Prасtісе mаkеѕ реrfесt tоо I wаѕ nоt gоіng tо hаvе whаtѕоеvеr rіѕkѕ wіth thіѕ DIY, thеnсе I uѕеd саrdbоаrd tоgеthеr wіth fіght рvс/lеаthеrеttе mаtеrіаl tо rеаllу рrасtісе рlасеmеnt tоо tесhnіԛuе.

The tool is bound-loaded, therefore amongst a quick force, the postage stamp is snapped inward to the cloth alongside an obvious click, punching in addition to embossing the material.  This took me a piece to figure out – I’d simply been pushing the postage alongside equally much weight every bit I could – too you lot can come across the difference in the impressions left below – firstly on the carte:

mееt thе mоdіfу іnwаrd thе wоrd [іgnоrе thе wоnkу ‘T’!]:

Once I got the hang of how the tool actually worked [*rolls eyes*], I started to practise the placement of letters as well as spacing betwixt them.  I’one thousand first-class together with good versed in stamping words that tin can hold a infinite that almost creates two carve up ones – sometimes, this is a lovely by-production of handmade items together with adds much more charm to a project, withal; I skilful to minimise the variance inwards spacing between letters.  As the stamps were diamond-shaped, in that location wasn’t genuinely a special technique to this that I could observe – practise and judging by optic, and so making a real low-cal impression to double bank check before embossing worked best for me.  Once I’d skilful all I could, it was time to emboss the wallet.

The wallet is made from pvc material, so I knew that this would mean later the postage stamp was punched, the cloth would have a bit of ‘jump’ in addition to mould back in to place around the embossed letter of the alphabet.  [A material such every bit leather will exit an impression less likely to change afterward stamped].

To help alongside my alignment, I placed a newspaper tab to give me a clear [but removable] straight guide line to follow:

I also used the diamond shape of the stamp to aid me ensure the letter would live pressed inward a direct job, lining up the bottom bespeak alongside the newspaper tab border:

Once consummate, I ‘fixed’ the impressions further with a quick run amongst the atomic number 26 [nether a tea towel to protect the material].  I and then added the initials to the dorsum every bit well [I felt similar I was on a scrap of a scroll….]

I’m really pleased with the outcome together with will be a scrap braver with what I emboss inwards the time to come – whether full names or quotes together with I’d similar to effort embossing amongst colour side by side – if it happens, I’ll part the results on hither!
