Watercolored Embossing Folder


2018-04-08 18.36.16
It’s Monday morning and I’d like to share a card I made yesterday.  My friend, Janice and I attended our monthly book club and then stopped in to AC Moore on the way home and I found this pretty embossing folder (Corner Rose) for $1.99 and cute little die for four bucks!  I love a good deal like that!  Of course, I had to try them out as soon as I got home!  I ran a piece of Bristol Smooth watercolor paper through the Cuttlebug with the folder and decided to paint in the blossoms with my Zig markers.  I used water to move the ink and really like how it came out!

When the ink was dry, I added Wink of Stella glitter marker to the flowers then spattered on a little black and white craft paint.  I LOVE the graceful font of the word die!  That was a quick cut in my Cuttlebug and I attached it with a little Glossy Accents glue.

I mounted the panel onto a black card base and voila!  Done!  I think I may try this technique with some of my other embossing folders!  Isn’t it pretty?!

  1. I am going blind watching and want to get a cuttlebug or similar. Trouble is I had all these things, big shot, cricut etc and decided to try quilting and sold (gave away) all my supplies. So now I am starting all over. You are so talented.


  2. Oh boy!! That’s not fun to have to restock! But a Cuttlebug is fairly inexpensive and multi-purpose!! Thank you for your kind compliment, Roxanne! 🙂


  3. This card is beautiful. Love the idea of coloring the embossed area. And such a cute folder. Now I have to check to see what folders I have that would work. Thanks for the inspiration.
