Embossing folder ideas are not in short supply. Even though this may be true, there’s always room for more ideas.
There is one technique that I share today that I am pretty sure I came up with.
Don’t get me wrong. I am sure someone somewhere has done this, but I haven’t seen it. So in my little head, I came up with a new embossing folder idea.
I can’t tell you the last time I spent several hours making cards. I know, that sounds crazy. But I find that nowadays, I spend a lot of time doing administrative work and planning and prepping for events for my amazing customers, which makes my crafting hours limited.
So Saturday, I hunkered down in my craft room and spent hours making cards with this one color combo.
I had a blast and was reminded how therapeutic it is to just create.
While these cards were time consuming they were totally worth it.
I’ll make sure to share any tips I have along the way.
For the peace card, I inked the the embossing folder on the side that was flat with the debossed leaves. Then I ran it through the embossing folder. This card was so simple.
For the felt embossing, make sure you use a 3D embossing folder and run it through a minimum of 3 times. I also added a paper shim on top of the embossing folder, which helped it emboss even deeper.
The vellum joy card is probably my favorite.
I made this one into a shaker card. I started by inking up the Woodland Embossing Folder with Shaded Spruce Ink, and
For this card I inked the side of the 3D embossing folder that would make an inked imprint on the cardstock.
It’s best to ink the side that has the embossing older that has raised images.
Last is the most simple and least time consuming. Use foil cardstock in an embossing folder. Simply gorgeous results.
