Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder with Woven Heirlooms for the Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ July  Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects that are “Mixing It Up” –  adding texture that will really take your projects up a notch – or two! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.  I decided to make a card that shows another way to use your embossing folders. I’m sure you’ve seen it before but when was the last time you actually did it? The Magnolia 3D embossing folder has such beautiful embossed images and it’s only right that they are the focal point.

There are so many wonderful ways to add texture to your cards! You can do a little or a lot to get the style of card that you love.

My Secrets to Making This Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder Project

  • I tried a few different methods to get my background. In the end, I just applied ink from ink pad directly to the Magnolia 3D embossing folder. If you haven’t tried these folders yet, they are really great for giving you a wonderful embossed image.
  • You can put ink on either side of the folder to get different looks.
  • I took a baby wipe and quickly removed ink (certainly not precisely) from the flower areas. It doesn’t have to be perfect!
  • After applying the ink, position the paper on the other side of the folder, then close it gently. Run it through your die cutting machine with the proper “sandwich” to get a good impression.
  • Secret: You can get another look altogether by spritzing the ink before embossing.
  • So Saffron ink was applied to a block and mixed with water. I applied the mixture to the flower centers with my aqua painter.
  • The rest of the card was easily done by cutting out a square stitched frame with So Saffron cardstock. Then, I stamped the sentiment from Woven Heirlooms in Seaside Spray and cropped it out with the same die.
  • The finishing touch was a simple little bow tied onto the frame.

Product Spotlight

Create projects with two beautifully embossed magnolias using the Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder. It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through a die-cutting and embossing machine, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design. 3D embossing folders take embossing to the next level, with deeper, more detailed impressions than standard embossing folders—great for card fronts and accents. * 1 folder * 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) * Use with a die-cutting and embossing machine
