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)
