Hi lovely crafty friends, there is something incredibly cool about embossing folders. Ever since I saw the first one I was hooked.
I think it’s because of the instant texture, I just simple love a good old bit of that. You can use embossing folders with paper but that’s so obvious. So lets try another way to use those folders

The last years we see more and more 3D embossing folders and they add so much depth and interest to a regular piece of paper. The magical way it can turn plain paper into spectacular textured piece just by rolling it through the die-cutting machine.
For the first card I used the Tim Holtz – 3D Embossing Folder – Intertwined ( SBC | SSS ) this gorgeous woven design can be kept simple or make it more spectacular by using acetate. And if that’s not enough, add a bit of Alcohol Ink Pearls ( SBC | JGG | SSS ) and we are ready to rock.
I kept this card pretty simple just by finishing it with a sentiment in silver.
It occurred to me that I didn’t make any fall cards this year, so it was about time. on this card I used Tim Holtz – 3D Embossing Folder – Foliage ( SBC | SSS ) combined with Alcohol Ink Pearls ( SBC | JGG | SSS )
And to finish the card I added the Leaf Fragments ( SBC | SSS ) coloured with distress oxide ink.
Typewriter fonts or letters are always cool, the instant vintage look they give. That’s why this embossing folder was on my wishlist from the moment I layed eyes on it.
The Tim Holtz – 3D Embossing Folder – Typewriter ( SBC | SSS ) brings the past to life. The speckled background adds to the vintage look.
Thanks for stopping by and make sure to keep on crafting!
