New additions to the Darice Embossing folders range.


Hi all I wanted to share with you some cards I made with 3 of the latest Darice embossing folder launch.

Firstly here’s some cards I made with the Grass folder.




I picked out the detail on the embossing with my Spectrum Noir pens. Matted onto some Core’dinations cardstock and gold mirror card. I have added a layer underneath which comprises of a core’dinations base, gold mirror card and ribbon from my stash. I have punched some butterflies out using my Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch. These have 3 layers each. The base card is an 8x8 scalloped card and I have matted onto this some of the Foiled acetate from the Toread Range from Crafter’s Companion. Finally I added a sentiment and some stickles glitter glue.



This card I have used a cream speckled a4 basecard folded into A5. Matted and layered using the smae cardstock and gold mirror card. I have created a embossed panel using the folder and highlighted the grass a bit more using distress ink. Added Ribbon and Pearl details with a peel off sentiment.


The next embossing folder is a stars folder.



This card is quite simple. I have embossed the first layer with red core’dinations and then cut some stars out of a further sheet of core’dinations which I embossed with the folder. I have matted this onto gold mirror card and printed a stars backing paper. Finally adding ribbon, spray and sparkle, gems and peel off details.



The next card I have made with the cute Angelica and Friends Range from Crafter’s Companion which launched last week. I just love working with these cute adorable characters. I have only subtly used the stars folder for this one. I added a sentiment, ribbon, flowers and stickles as details.


The next folder is a 12 inch border strip of 3 tickets. I have to admit I did struggle with this folder to come up with inspiration.




This card has been made using the Male Hobbies CD from Crafter’s Companion. I decided to emboss some shrink plastic for this card and coloured with my spectrum noir pens. I cut the tickets to create two individual tickets and then shrunk them to make little stubs.



This card has been made keeping the tickets at their origional size and embossed onto core’dinations and sanded. I have added a stamped sentiment and button for details. The backing paper is from the vintage CD. I have also distressed the paper and stamped sentiment using Distress ink.


That’s it for this post.
