That Embossing Folder....

Not sure if you are aware of the craze that went on about "that embossing folder". I know that people in a few of my Facebook craft groups were just raving about "that embossing folder". When I found out that Australian Simply Cards Magazine Issue 94 was coming out with "that embossing folder", that I knew that I had to get it.

So last night we went shopping and I thought I would check if our newsagent had the magazine - yep, they had about 6 of them on the shelf. So one of them came home with me. This is the magazine that I'm talking about.

You also get two stamps with it - With Love and Birthday Wishes.

This morning I've made two cards with the embossing folder.

The card on the left I have sponged on to the embossing folder with different coloured water based inks and then I spritzed the folder with water where it's inked and then placed the watercolour paper on top of it. Closed the embossing folder and then rubbed my brayer over the top (it has not gone through the cuttlebug to be embossed).

The card on the right - not totally happy with it, but it works. I'ved inked my brayer up with Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink and then rolled it on to one side of the embossing folder. Placed the watercolour paper into the folder and then I ran it through my Cuttlebug. I then went over it with kindy glitz.

I will make more cards using this embossing folder and the stamps.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
