No pics, just an idea.

Cut some letters/numbers with your die cutting equipment, then run them through a cuttlebug embossing folder. (or cut letters from an already embossed piece of card).

Lightly swipe an inkpad across the embossing to highlight the detail and then, if you choose, finish off with a coat of Diamond Glaze.

There you go - textured, decorated letters for your LO's or cards. Mr Green

Hmm...thanks Lorraine, Very Happy You could also use the flat part of an emery board to 'rough up' the surface before or after inking.

I did it on my Twinchies and really like the effect and will defo be doing it again. The DG hides the texture a bit, but they still look nice.

I used Swiss Dots and swiped them with black. Mr Green

It is a super technique and Maria, it DOES work well with Swiss Dots on Olivia - take my word for it! Thanks Lorraine, as always.
