Embossing folders have been around for quite a while and are an easy way to make a big impression. Imagine how the card above would look if that were just a flat piece of Whisper White Cardstock in the background? Pretty boring. But add the fun texture of the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and voila, it goes from "flat to fluffy" in just a few seconds. Simply insert a piece of cardstock into the embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and you've got instant texture.
This week, we'll be talking about the difference between Textured Impressions Folders and Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders. We'll also talk about different ways to use your embossing folders, how to store them, what not to do with them, and some different techniques you may not have thought about.
Whether you're new to paper crafting or a seasons veteran, there will be something here this week for everyone. So follow along...leave me a comment...and Happy Stamping!
