Hi Altenew friends, it's Jaycee! Do you love the texture you get from embossing folders? Now it's even easier to add color to them with professional-looking results!
Embossing folders work like letterpress machines. Simply follow the embossing folder sandwich for your die-cutting machine and what you're left with is stunning texture on your cardstock. With the addition of simple coloring stencils, you can now add even more color to dry embossed cardstock panels. Gone are the days when embossing folders are used solely for backgrounds.
In my ‘Perfect Pairings with Jaycee' video tutorial, we can pair background and foreground embossed images!
Textured Backgrounds – Hosta 3D Embossing Folder
Just like Hostas come in a multitude of cultivars, it is now possible to color your cardstock in the same variation. I love that the simple coloring stencil set is arranged from foreground to background. This way, you can add texture and depth of field to a background. Now you can really get lost in this jungle scene.
Textured Focal Elements – Imaginary Jungle 3D Embossing Folder
After working on the background, we can now add foreground elements. I love how I can piece together this scene using the Imaginary Jungle 3D Embossing Folder. Not only are these pieces colored with the same gradient as the background, but now they have added texture from the embossing folder.
Some of the Craft Your Life Project Kit bundles include coordinating stamps, dies, layering stamps, and embossing folders to achieve a similar effect. One of my favorites is the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals.
Hope you enjoyed today's inspiration on how to easily add texture to your cards! Thanks for stopping by!
