This embossing folder technique is one of my favorites! It provides the smoothest backgrounds and still gives you that amazing contrast of white paper and embossed detail. I’m using all new embossing folders from Simon Says Stamp’s Born to Sparkle release in the 7 card projects that I’m sharing.
This card is created just like the one above, but this one is oriented vertically and uses a greeting from the Simon Says Stamp XL Greetings 2 set.
Moving on to the Seedhead Stems folder, I made a series of cards…
For this colorful card, I ink blended Ripe Persimmon, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Inks. On top of the dandelions, I added some Simon Says Stamp Unicorn Dust and Unicorn Confetti glitter. The sentiment is a new one from Simon, the You Shine die.
Next, I made two similar looking cards (one of which is a mini slimline), both using the Seedhead Stems embossing folder.
The mini slimline card uses sentiments from the new Reverse Get Well sentiment strip set, and I also added a few clear sequins on top. These two cards also features the glitter technique that I used on some of the others.
The second card is created in the same way, but this one features an embossed sentiment from the XL Greetings 2 stamp and diet set from Simon.
On this card I stamped and embossed a birthday greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Birthday set. In addition to the Unicorn Dust glitter I added to the flowers, I also applied dots of Nuvo Vintage Drops in a blue shade.
All of these cards all feature the exact same technique, but each look completely different depending on which folder and colors are used. This is such a fun way to use your embossing folders – I cannot wait to do it again! Are you a fan of embossing folders? Would you try this technique out? Let me know in the comments!
