This month’s challenge on Scrap It Girl is to use embossing folders … or, if you don’t have any, pre-embossed paper.
I wanted to show off a couple of techniques, so I made a card.
I started with Shimmer Sheetz in blue, red and silver.
For the background, I embossed blue Shimmer Sheetz with the Bouquet embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Then, I sanded the top, which made parts of it clear. I mounted this to a white cardstock base.
Next, I cut flowers out of both silver and red Shimmer Sheetz using dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs and a metal adaptor plate.
I used the dotted folder (also from ECD) to emboss the silver flower. Then, I swiped a StazOn ink pad over the top to color the raised dots.
I added a little ribbon, and the card is done … simple, but detailed!
Now it is your turn. Create a project with embossing folders and share your link at Scrap It Girl. You could win some fabulous prizes!
