Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Craftwell today.
I received this awesome Theresa Collins embossing folder - Snapshots. This embossing folder is approximately 8 1/2" x 12" - I've not seen one this large before and it's the perfect size for a full sheet of cardstock. The possibilities are endless with an embossing folder of this size.
I used Core-dinations cardstock for the base, cutting it to fit my card. Using the embossing folder, I embossed the cardstock, then used a distressing tool over the embossed images. I added another sheet of cardstock on top, distressed the edges and wrapped yellow ribbon around the panel. A birthday cake and coordinating sentiment were stamped and embossed, then die cut to fit the card.
This 8" x 8" square frame also uses Core-dinations cardstock. I cut out the center then embossed the panel. I again distressed the entire piece and adhered it to the frame with Mod Podge. For the opening, I stamped a sentiment with Ann Butler's ColorBox Berry Ink and embossed it with Top Boss Clear Embossing Powder.
Assorted Prima flowers were inked with Berry Ink and added around the opening.
I think this would be a perfect gift for the upcoming holidays, don't you?
I Thanks for stopping by today.
