Using Embossing Folders in New Ways

Happy Monday stampers! So glad you popped in today! I’m going to be talking about using embossing folders (EF) in new ways.

I don’t know about you, but I have a habit of purchasing embossing folders for particular projects and then forgetting about them once the project is done. I’m trying to “think outside the box” and come up with new ways to use my folders.


You probably recognize the EF used with the Whisper White Cardstock; Gently Falling. This was introduced at the holidays and I used in Christmas cards for snow. I think it looks great behind these flowers; simple, yet it “pops”. Below are the products used and also instructions. I hope this inspires you to “think outside the box” and use YOUR embossing folders in new ways. Please send me your creations; I’d love to use them in my “guest blogger” feature.
