Two techniques with 3D embossing folders

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders: add coloured ink (card 1)

Before running your embossing folder through your die-cutting machine, why not add ink to one side of the folder first. This will then transfer onto your cardstock as you emboss it.

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders

For this card, I added Lavender Fields Altenew ink to the side with the think lines depicting the triangles on the Diamond Stars 3D Embossing Folder. This gave a very soft subtle highlight to the diamond triangles. 

In addition, I added Lavender Fields ink to a die-cut using the new Floral Lace die with my small ink blending tool and adhere this to the card with liquid adhesive. The card was finished with a few sentiments from the Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set and a few purple sequins. 

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders: add coloured ink (card 2)

For this card, I added ink to the opposite side of the embossing folder. This adds inks into the crevices and debossed areas. As this is a 3D embossing folder, there are varying levels of the folder, so you may not get a uniform inking up when doing this technique if this was to bother you. 

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders

This method, with the ink in the debossed areas, really highlights the star pattern. For this card, I added a floral element using the new Altenew Climber Flowers Die set – linking the flowers and foliage up with Purple, yellow and green inks. 

To add a little more interest to the background before adding the floral element on top, add a few black splatters with Altenew Jet Black Pur Ink spray. Once more this card was finished with a heat embossed sentiment strip along with a few scattered sequins. 

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders: add heat embossing (card 1)

This technique is very similar to the previous two as you are adding ink to the folder again but this time with embossing ink. Once you have embossed the card, cover with embossing powder and heat set. 

This Mod Squares 3D embossing folder is my favourite as I just love the detail in this card with embossing powder. To complete this card, I added a small white Nesting Label die-cut along with the new Altenew Branches and Berries die set. I added a touch of grey ink blending to the die-cuts for some contrast. 

Once more this card was finished with a heat embossed sentiment strip along with a few scattered sequins. 

Two techniques with 3D embossing folders: add heat embossing (card 2)

For this card, I added the ink to the other side of the folder before heat embossing with gold embossing powder. In addition, I also embossed a piece of white cardstock normally with the embossing folder having already die-cut with a nesting label die before hand. 

The embossed die-cut frame was foam mounted onto the background and a layered grey die-cut using the new Altenew Fancy Celebrate die was added. 

Lastly, I added a heat embossed sentiment strip along with a few scattered sequins.
