In today’s post, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite things, cardmaking with embossing folders.
Cardmaking with embossing folders offers a super easy way to add texture and dimension in one quick step! Plus, it’s a great way to add interest to designer papers too! In this post, you’ll see two cards made with some of my favorite new Sale-A-Bration items. These are both quick and easy to make!
Can you see the fun texture on the designer paper here? I simply attached strips of designer paper to my cardstock and then dry embossed with the Softly Sophisticated 3D Embossing Folder. You can get this embossing folder as part of a bundle with the Softly Sophisticated Stamp Set. Get the bundle for FREE with a $100 merchandise order.
The sentiment is heat embossed in white, punched out with the Heartfelt Hexagon punch, and popped up on Dimensionals. For some added texture, I’ve used the Wavy Trim with some Garden Green ribbon in behind. This Wavy Trim made me think of the twigs in a bird’s nest so I love it with the gorgeous new Flight & Airy designer series paper. This designer paper is one of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items! You can get it for FREE with a $50 merchandise order in my online store!
For my second card, I’ve used a different pattern from the same designer paper pack.
The colors in this pattern have a softer look, so I used some different colors of cardstock to complement the paper. I love how this one turned out!
For this card, I decided to add a little ink over the heat-embossed sentiment. It’s subtle and I like how it spotlights the sentiment for a bit of added interest.
Here are my two cards side-by-side:
I love this simple layout and can visualize using lots of different designer papers in the same way. I hope you’re inspired to create and you’ll give it a try!
Here’s a look at the Softly Sophisticated Bundle and my original card:
