Embossing folders are really useful for a whole variety of techniques. Not only can you use them to create embossed and debossed papers, you can ink both sides of the folder to produce different textured effects. Plus, you can emboss die-cut sentiments, cut out embossed elements and scatter embossing powder to achieve a beautiful effect.
YOU WILL NEED:
Embossing folder, Stampin’ Up! Layered Leaves
Embossing powder, Tonic Studios Nuvo, white
Dies: Tonic Studios stitched dot square; My Favorite Things Hooray, Wish
Inks: Catherine Pooler Sauna, Party Dress, It’s A Girl, Tutti Frutti, Fiesta Blue, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt; Tsukineko Versamark
Embossing heat tool
Small ink roller
1 Die cut a square frame from the centre of yellow card, 12.5cm square. Create a thin light green frame the same size as the yellow aperture. Die cut a sentiment from white card, then pink, and layer together, slightly offset.
2 Apply green ink to the flat side of an embossing folder, add a piece of white cardstock and run it through a die-cutting machine. Remove from the folder and allow it to dry, then stick to the blank.
3 Adhere the thin and thicker aperture together and fix to a 13cm square white blank with 3D foam pads. Using the embossing folder, emboss another piece of cardstock. Trim some of the leaves and add to the edges of the frame. Add a strip of blue cardstock to the centre and add the sentiment on top.
