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.

Designer's Tips!

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.
