Embossing Folder Techniques

In today’s post, I’ve included several variations on a fun technique with the Country Floral embossing folder!

Embossing Folder Techniques with the Country Floral embossing folder are shown here, including heat embossing on copper foil and stamping with the folder.

For my original design above I’ve applied Memento Black ink to my Country Floral embossing folder and dry embossed my focal piece, to create a bit of an antiqued look. I heat embossed over the whole surface with clear embossing powder to seal the black ink on the surface.

Can you see the difference between the two embossed copper pieces below?

The one on the left has the black and the one on the right is dry embossed with no added ink.

Here is a close up of the card:

For this next version, I used some other colors of ink on the copper foil.

Again the colors were applied directly to the embossing folder and then the copper foil was dry embossed to transfer the ink to the surface of the foil. The only color that really shows is a bit of the Early Espresso on the bottom right and left corners. Again, clear embossing powder was used to seal the whole surface just like in the first version.

To create some more contrast and interest, I ran my Jet Black StazOn Ink pad over the raised areas of the dry embossed copper foil after it was dry embossed.

Here’s a close up so you can get a better look:

My final version of this card used yet another embossing folder techniques variation.

For this card, I used Versamark on the embossing folder and then heat embossed with Black embossing powder.

Check out this very dramatic result!

Here are a few close ups so you can appreciate the detail.

On these close-ups, you may also be able to see that there’s a layer of Basic Black cardstock that is dry embossed with the Subtle Embossing folder. Also, the Black Shimmer ribbon is wrapped around the backside of this layer, and the whole thing is attached to the card body with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are all three versions of my Embossing Folder Techniques cards:

Each turned out so different and I love them all and hope you do too!
