Going Blue With New Embossing Folders

by Svitlana Shayevich

Hello, friends!

Svitlana is here. Today, I want to share three cards featuring new embossing folders in my favorite blue color scheme.

SLIMLINE FAUX JEANS TEXTURE

I like working with products that help imitate natural textures and the new Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder is one of those. Well, linen technically is not “natural texture” but it's the most natural man-made texture in my book.

For the card below, I used this embossing folder to create a textured jeans-like looking background.

I chose a slimline size for this card, as I think this ratio works better for the jeans theme. First, I applied Clear Embossing Ink on one side of the folder. Then, I embossed a Navy Cardstock slimline panel using it, which also inked up the depressed areas of the panel. After that, I sprinkled the panel with Pure White Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Due to the length of the panel, I have to do it twice in the both top and bottom parts of it to emboss the whole panel. In the area where two parts of embossing met, I strategically placed my floral element.

To create the florals for the card, I used beautiful Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape which I adhered onto a Classic Crest Solar White 80lb Cardstock, hand cut, and placed onto the panel using dimensional adhesive.

After that, the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base.

To finish off the card, I white embossed a sentiment from the Birthday Greetings Stamp Set onto a Jet Black Cardstock strip and popped it up onto it.

GALAXY SENTIMENT

Another interesting embossing folder released recently is the Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder which can be paired with a stamp from the Modern Greetings Stamp Set.

I used the stamp to stamp the large sentiment circle onto a white cardstock panel. I used the Azurite, Ultramarine, Midnight Violet, and Ultraviolet Crisp Dye Inks to stamp it, which I applied in different areas of the stamp to achieve the galaxy look. Of course, I used my mini MISTI to be able to stamp to the same exact spot several times.

After stamping, I embossed the panel using the Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder, aligning the stamped design along the the raised areas of the folder.

After that, I added Pure White Ink Spray splatters and confetti and foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.

MONOCHROMATIC EMBOSSED DESIGN

For my last card, I used the same Modern Birthday Faux Letterpress Debossing Folder to create a monochromatic one-layer card.

First, I “colored” a white panel by blending the Ultramarine Crisp Dye Ink onto it. After that, I embossed the panel using the folder and blended the Azurite Crisp Dye Ink along the panel edges as well as on top of the raised areas.

To add interest to the background, I added water splatters, white ink spray splatters, and also stamped outline roses around the edges using the Cartoon Rose Stamp Set and Azurite Crisp Dye Ink.

Next, I added highlights to the sentiment with my white gel pen. After that, the panel was adhered onto a white card base.

To finish off the card, I added several white sequins.

Here you have three ideas of how you can use embossing folders from the new release. Hope you like them and give some a try.

Have a wonderful day!
