Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s another new embossing folder from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder! When I first saw this embossing folder, I thought it was pretty cool and would give another different look to your cardstock and DSP! I actually used this embossing folder on DSP from a previous post, which it did give it a very subtle textured look, so I thought I would show you how it would look using cardstock. Not only that, but I used it two different ways on today’s card, which is a quick and easy “any occasion” card!
The base layer is Smoky Slate cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, I used Smoky Slate ink to press, or tap, the ink pad on the raised side of the folder (the side that has the line and SU! logo), spritz the cardstock with water, and then emboss, which will give you the debossed side. The next layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”, spritzed with water and embossed, you will use the embossed (or raised) side of the cardstock. Along the 3 ¾” ends, I tore the ends of the cardstock off, along the 5” side I made little tears in the cardstock, and then I used a Stampin’ Sponge with Smoky Slate ink to sponge all along the edges:
For the rest of the card front, you will need:
1. Use the 2” Circle Punch to cut out Whisper White cardstock, stamp the birds in Basic Gray ink (you may have to stamp again after you stamp the water to get a darker image), stamp the water in Seaside Spray ink, stamp the small sand stamp in Smoky Slate ink, and stamp the small grass stamp in Basic Gray ink.
2. Use the 2 ¼” Circle Punch to cut out Basic Gray cardstock, this will be layered under the 2” Circle image piece.
3. Cut a piece of Misty Moonlight/silver Baker’s Twine (Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack) about 11” or so.
Adhere the Seaside Spray embossed cardstock at a slight angle onto the Smoky Slate embossed cardstock base layer. Place a small amount of adhesive in the middle of the cardstock and wind the baker’s twine as shown, make sure that the ends will be visible under the layered circles:
Adhere the layered circles with dimensionals over the baker’s twine with dimensionals and then adhere the completed base layer to a Basic Gray cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:
For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, use the large groundcover stamp (what goes under the lighthouse) to ink the end in Smoky Slate ink to stamp in the corner, use Seaside Spray ink to stamp the water (two times across), and then use the two grass image stamp in Basic Gray ink:
What do you think about the Old World Paper 3D Embossing Folder? Isn’t this a fun way to use the same embossing folder for two different looks? I originally tried the Smoky Slate cardstock without inking the embossing folder, but I really liked the look of the cardstock when I inked the embossing folder! This is a great way to also show you how some of those carry over stamp sets can easily coordinate with new embossing folders!
