Embossing Folder Fun

Hi, Scrappy Friends! Today I have some embossing folder fun to share with you.  I love to make cards using embossing folders, and the CropStop Shop has a huge selection of embossing folders.  The one I used on my Happy Birthday card is the Couture Creations Chiaro Serenity Collection.

After embossing a piece of white cardstock, I rubbed some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mustard Seed and Forest Moss over the raised areas. Then sprayed with some water to get the inks to bleed and run together slightly. I then used a heat gun to dry after I got the look I wanted.

Then over the raised embossed areas I applied a really thin coat of Prima Texture Paste Platinum Crackle.  I then embellished with some Petaloo White Jeweled Flowers and some Yellow Organdy Swirls Ribbon and Scrappers Floss in Sunshine.  Now it is your turn to create some embossing folder fun!

About Nadine Carlier

Nadine has been scrapbooking for about 18 years now with 12 x 12 layouts and cards being her favorite things to create. Since becoming a stay at home mom four years ago after being a hairstylist for 20 years, she started scrapping full time to help keep her sanity! She describes her scrappy style as eclectic, but she also loves creating grungy like projects. She feels no project is complete unless it has some sort of mixed media on it, whether it be; color sprays, pastes, paint or anything that's messy.
