Doily Art

Hi Everybody,

This really pretty card is simply created with an embossing folder and the impression is so deep that it looks as if it has been decoupaged on the top.

It is a 3-D folder called  Doily Art  and it is from the Celebrations Collection   from Spellbinders

The sandwich for using these folders in your Grand Calibur is the Pink Embossing plate along with the Raspberry Adapter plate as they are very deep

Some tips if you do use these folders ... first is to spritz the card first to soften the fibres and this will give you a deeper emboss.

And  secondly when you add the folder to the machine add it with the hinge in first as this is the folders narrowest end.

Once embossed all I have done is  run over the raised pattern with an ink pad to enhance the design even more, but there is  also a stamp set to match this die set

To the design I have some lovely organza ribbon with a sparkly centre to the bow and it is an easy way to create an impressive card for those last minute occasions.

The sentiment is also a die cut and these make a useful addition  to all your card making or scrapbook pages.

There are several styles to choose from and this is Sentiments One  ... I have added the link to them all so that you can see the choices available to you

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Another post for me today Christina. I too just now watched you on C and C USA. Lovely demo; the new Spellbinders dies are amazing and the box you made so pretty and easy! The card you made at the end of the show was beautiful. Labels one was the very first Spellbinders die I purchased so I may have to get that card creator die to go along with it. Well done, I hope we get to see you more on C and C.

  14. Oh lovely, did not know to spritz the card first, but will give it a try next time...Do you leave it to dry before you go over the embossing with an ink pad ? Luv Ursula xx

  19. Hi Christina, Wow, what a wonderful card! I love the embossed doily and thanks so much for the tip regarding spritzing the card before running it through. It looks like it's been stamped and heat embossed it's so deeply embossed. I think I'm going to have to look out for this folder. Thanks for showing us the wonderful effect it gives :) x
