Altenew 3-D Embossing Folders

Hi Everybody,

I had these new embossing folders from Altenew to play with last week and they are lovely. 

They are 3-D which makes the embossing so deep in the card,  and with this impression I decided to simply ink over the top very lightly.

This left the two shades of ink that I used sitting on top of the raised areas to give a lovely effect.

I added some black splatters to the frons as well and added some green sequins.

The sentiment is cut from black mirror card and I have use the Creative Expressions dies that has lots of words in it so that you can build up your own greeting.

I bought several of the 3-D folders and I have lots more cards that I will add over the week to show you what I have been playing with.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Embossing folders are my weakness Christina. Karen Holmes

  2. This is lovely Christina. I am so glad you are recovering and I love that Ruby thinks everyone who comes to your door is a visitor and more important, walking partner for her. I know my Greta loves the mail man here. Our postal workers are not permitted to offer treats but our workaround is I hand him a treat to give to Greta... Now I am not saying my Greta isn't very bright, but she "sees" me hand him the treat; he in turn gives her the treat and she truly believes "he" gave her her treat. I don't need a video camera to know when the mailman is approaching; Greta lets me know in an instant. Continue your recovery and I pray your hip self-heals (hey we have self-healing mats for crafting, why not hips?) tee hee hee. All my best..
