CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Embossing Folders

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  Today you will see how we’ve used embossing folders.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Embossed Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Cardstock (Indian Corn Blue, Colonial White), Scalloped Border Punch, Bronze Shimmer Trim, Paper Flowers (retired), Jubilee Paper Packet, and Brown & Tan Sparkles Assortment.

It has been quite awhile since I did anything in my scrapbook room even though I have had the idea for this card for quite some time.  My idea started with this pin and grew from there.  I am new to using embossing folders and I love how they add so much to a card.  I couldn’t help but bling this one up by placing sparkles in all the open embossed shapes.  This is a very easy card to replicate and is perfect for many different occasions (Birthday, Thank You, Mother’s Day)

Now hop on over to Michelle Loncar!

Mine are a little different:

Ivy Lane Card Kit by Wendy Kessler

This kit provides supplies and instructions to create a total of 15 cards (5 each of these three designs): 

Ivy Lane Card 1 by Wendy Kessler

Ivy Lane Card 2 by Wendy Kessler

 

The instructions call for Pear ink but I didn’t think that looked right so I changed it on this card and used Olive Ink instead.  You can see the difference from card 1 (used Pear on the sentiment) and card 2 (used Olive on the flower).  If I could do it again, I would use Olive on both but with all that masking already done I really didn’t want to redo it. :-)

Ivy Lane Card 3 by Wendy Kessler

I altered this last design by using the B&T paper for the banner on the bottom and the Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set.  Don’t be afraid to change up the cards like this to make them suit your own personal needs!
