Anything Goes Embossing With A Twist of Pink

This is from the stamp set I’ve mentioned a couple of times in recent posts. It is from Concord & 9th and is one I’ve had for a while and only now am inking up. I’m also still on my kick of partial embossing only this time I used a folder. As I had 2 folders that are similar and because I wanted to emboss just a part of the card I had the bright idea of cutting the folder in half. I marked it and asked my hubby to cut it for me as his tools are better. He kept one of the hinges, and I added tape for another, to ensure it stays straight. This particular folder is from CTMH. I stamped the rainbow and used some water to spread the inks into any gaps. Then I fussy cut. I added the fussy cut clouds and originally planned a different sentiment from the set but I didn’t like it as it was too big. Instead I used the one you can see. I fussy cut the edge of folded strip which is also partially scored on the back piece. It still needed something so I went over the rainbow and the clouds with opal blaze which makes it really shine. A few raindrops with some Nuvo crystal glaze and a small stamped sun finished the card. No pink on this one but I’m adding it to the Can You Handle the Pressure challenge.

  1. Sometimes an idea is worth going with and in this case having a 2nd similar folder meant no loss if the result was a throw away. That said I may look into having a few that I can cut like this as I like the flexibility of only adding the embossing in one place.

  2. The center embossed panel is a great idea and WOW that Derek cut your folder in half. I get concerned when I snip a word stamp apart. It definitely paid off though. Very creative and that sketch half sun is pretty cool.


  3. This is such a cool card. The half sun is a great idea. I’m getting to really like partial embossing. I might follow your example and have hubby cut one or two of my folders.
