Daffodil Delight 3D Embossing Folder
Do daffodils bring a smile to your face? This embossing folder features a beautiful array of daffodils. The flowers are set so you may emboss them along the side of a card lengthwise or across a card in the center, top, or bottom. This embossing folder coordinates with the Build-A-Garden: Daffodil Delight Stamp Set and Layering Stencil Set.
2 Creative Ways of Using Daffodil Delight 3D Embossing Folder
First up, I swiped Toasted Mauve and Pink Sand onto the 3D embossing folder. To diffuse the ink blotches, I used Altenew Ink Blending Tool (Small) and brushed over the ink. I then dry-embossed the images onto a piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.
Since this is partial dry-embossing, there will be a line once you have embossed it. I applied a piece of Glitter Cardstock (Gilded). You can see that I took it to the next level by adding a cute ribbon bow!
Here is a BOW-tiful reason to get the Banner Sentiment Cover Die. I took the 3 smallest ribbon banners and stars and decorated the strip.
1. Cut and trim a piece of Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock (80 lbs) to size.
3. Lightly spritz a mist of water over the ink, then dry-emboss.
4. Change the orientation of the embossing folder and repeat steps 1-3.
When embossing on a dark cardstock, try smooshing some white or gold pigment ink over the raised surfaces and you will get a great contrast that will accentuate the texture.
