Embossing folders are an amazing tool, with the ability to create an almost endless array of stunning effects. But how many of us use these clever creations to their full potential?
Embossing creates a beautiful three-dimensional design, which can be highlighted and coloured with whatever takes your fancy whether it’s markers, inkpads or gilding wax. But it can be daunting to make that first pen stroke or swipe of ink for fear of spoiling the pristine design you’ve just created.
Well sweep those worries to one side because these 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils have been designed to offer the perfect solution!
Each set includes a 3D embossing folder and a matching stencil to guide you in your colouring and highlighting so you can build confidence, unleash your creativity and fill your crafts with colour!
This handy guide will take you through the process of how to add colour to embossed designs.
First of all you need to create your embossed design.
All you need to do is place your chosen card or paper stock inside the folder, sandwich the folder with the clear cutting plate on the bottom, your magnetic shim, your folder with material inside and then place your Plastic Shim on top.
Now, roll the whole thing through your die-cutting machine to achieve an incredible 3D effect.
Now it’s time to use the matching stencils! Place your chosen stencil directly over the embossed design and use it as a guide to add as much or as little colour as you like with accuracy and ease!
Each set comes with two stencils so you can choose whether to add a splash of colour to the whole design or shine a light on delicate details.
Trust your creative instinct and experiment with markers, inkpads, gilding wax, embossing powders or watermark inkpads to find your perfect finish.
That’s it – it’s really that simple!
This new range of 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils features bold and beautiful designs filled with floral, geometric and natural designs so there’s plenty of opportunity to fill your world with colour!
