I have to be honest until recently Embossing Folders were something that I rarely used but lately … Wow!! I love them!! They add such great detail and elegance to so many projects. I am addicted. I have been working with some gorgeous ones from Sizzix that are a new release fro November. Both the Trellis & Swirls Set and the Dots, Zig, Zags and Flowers Set are going to get so much use in my craft room!
Here are a few samples from the recent Create and craft show demonstrating how i have used them so far!
This box was made by simple die-cutting it from acetate and then running the acetate through the big Shot with the Trellis Embossing Folder. It gives an amazing effect on acetate which could be used on so many different projects.
Embossing folders give a romantic and classic look to projects and are great for any type of wedding stationary. It takes some plain cardstock and makes it so elegant.
Again, this gift box gets an elegant look by adding some embossed panels. The flowers are from the new 3D Flowers Die which if you take a look at my previous post shows how versatile this die can be!
This card has been made by embossing some vellum and then inking over the top in bright colours. Such a great effect and an amazing way to create your own patterned paper.
Finally the snowman card was created by embossing some silver cardstock and inking over the top with a pigment ink. Simply add embossing powder and heat emboss. It gives a really sparkly festive effect.
