After several sessions in the craft room with lots of inks and mists, once in awhile it’s really refreshing to come back to white. When I limit myself to white, textures become the focus. And the result is always clean. Today I pulled on some of Brenda Walton’s line of dies and embossing folders with Sizzix to craft a wedding card for a dear old friend who will be tying the knot this July!
To start, I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock using the “Roses” embossing folder. See the Sizzix sandwich above? I spread out my sandwich a bit so you can see the order clearly. If there’s ever any question about which tab to use, just refer to the illustrations on the multi-purpose platform.
After sending that through, I die cut a few of the pieces in the “Floral Wreath” Thinlits Set – there are so many dies in this one! These die-cuts will be layered for a pretty focal image.
Sizzix has a new Die Brush and Foam Pad that remove tiny bits and pieces from dies and die-cuts. I know this will be a real time-saver when I want to craft an elegant card but I’ve waited until the very last minute.
This embossing folder has a lovely, feminine design. Both the embossed and debossed surfaces are interesting. Using this embossing folder, I recently played with some mixed media scraps and and debossing – will share those fun results with you in a few days.
