Welcome to another Art With Heart Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Stampin' Up's! versatile range of Embossing Folders. There are new Embossing Folders available in every Stampin' Up! catalogue and they are an inexpensive way of adding WOW! to your projects. Currently there are 24 different Embossing Folders in the range.
Tonight we plan on showing you ideas on how to use these folders.
The card I have for you tonight uses two Embossing Folders, Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder. I almost missed the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder as it is in the Holiday Catalogue with the Halloween stamp sets, on page 53. I'm not really into Halloween, but I intend to use this folder for many other projects.
For best results when using the Stampin' Up!'s 3D Embossing Folders; use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate; it adds a little more oomph to your die sandwich to make those 3D designs pop.
The front panel of the card was cut to fit inside one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies which I used to cut the Gold Foil shape. This panel was embossed using the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.
Another piece of card stock, 10x 14.3cm, forms the background of the card and was embossed using the Subtle 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
The large bauble from the Christmas Gleaming stamp set was heat embossed in Gold embossing powder on Gold Foil. The small bauble and the holly sprig were heat embossed in Gold on Very Vanilla card stock. Both bauble were punched out using the coordinating punches. The holly sprig was coloured using an Aquapainter and was then hand cut.
For the base of the card I used the Very Vanilla Thick card stock as it is less flimsy than the standard Very Vanilla card stock. I cut one A4 piece in half length wise and then scored at 14.8cm and 7.4cm to form a Z fold card.
The card front was then attached to the base.
The greeting was heat embossed in Gold on Very Vanilla card stock, hand cut and attached with Dimensionals.
