Watercoloring Fun with the Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder

First up! Now that it's springtime, this Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder really got me inspired! This card proves just how versatile that embossing folder can be.

Altenew-Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder-Golden Trim Washi Tape -24 Artist Watercolor Pan SetI thought the watercolor look will be beautiful with this Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder and that's what I did. All you need are Soothe and Smooth Watercolor Paper and Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set. Altenew-Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder-Golden Trim Washi Tape -025The dry-embossed textures and ridges are fantastic for watercoloring. To ensure the success of watercoloring, you must use good watercolor paper such as the Soothe and Smooth Watercolor Paper. Don't forget to use Altenew Watercolor Brushes (Round or Detailed) for better control of the watercoloring.Altenew-Cherry Plum Blossom 3D Embossing Folder-Golden Trim Washi Tape -026To enhance the details, I highlighted the dry-embossed ridges of the blossoms with the Fine Liner Pen Set (size 01) and Metallic Watercolor 14 Color Pan Set. 

The Gold Trim Washi Tape-highlighted sentiment (from Victoria Greenhouse) completed the card.

Fun Plant-Themed Card with Hosta 3D Embossing Folder

My next project features Hosta 3D Embossing Folder.

This gorgeous embossing folder is any plant lover's dream. I started out by inking up the background in assorted green inks. I then ran the Classic White Solar White Cardstock with the Hosta 3D Embossing Folder

Altenew-Hosta 3D Embossing Folder-Itty Bitty Branches Die Set -Fancy Congrats DieWith the Altenew ink blending tools (Mini and Small), I was able to highlight the Hosta leaves beautifully. Once it's trimmed to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, I added the watercolored Itty Bitty Branches Die Set for colors and accents.

Altenew-Hosta 3D Embossing Folder-Itty Bitty Branches Die Set -Fancy Congrats Die -001I added a strip of vellum along with the Congrats Die Set.

This square card is now perfect for any congratulatory occasion!

Hi Terri, it’s important to use Altenew Watercolor card-stock. This is to ensure that the water will not overly saturated the dry-embossed image. Also, it is helpful to have a piece of cloth or tissue at hand to dab. Hope this helps.
