BSS MONDAY IDEA - EMBOSSING FOLDERS

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

Today's idea is a new embossing folder. Lots of new embossing folders in the store right now.
Embossing folders are a great way to make beautiful cards quickly.

Both of these cards were made from a new Snowflake border embossing folder
The center label is right in the embossing. The deer are a die from Memory Box.


The blue paper used in the embossing folder for this card is core'dinations.
It has a white core, so I lightly sanded the snowflake edges. I also ran a piece of plain
white card stock through the same embossing folder and cute out the center only and
glued it on over the blue paper.


For the second card, I ran a piece of red card stock through the same embossing folder.
I used a Pearlescent Poppy, Dew Drop Brilliance pad to lightly ink over the snowflakes, then embossed with clear embossing powder. Then distressed the edges with Fired Brick distress ink from Ranger. Added the deer in white, some snow from a DecoArt snow writer and white glitter. The sentiment is Hero Arts.

Two completely different looks from the one embossing folder.
I'm working on a card with a great new embossing folder of a dress form. Will post pictures
this week, so come back for a look.

Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Now, on to the New Year!
Enjoy the rest of the holiday season.

Sue, I love these embossing folders. I've got to hit the stores this week. They are all very nice cards and I love how each one is different with the different ways of finishing them off. Great Job.
Hugs, Donna
