Simon Says Stamp Flower Buds Embossing Folder Cards

Hey card making friends, welcome back.  Today I have two Simon Says Stamp Flower Buds Embossing Folder Cards to share with you.  This new 3D embossing folder is from the recent CELEBRATE release.  In has a super deep impression of a round blooming flower that is repeated across the folder which when embossed, creates a beautiful background pattern for your cards. Or in the case of today’s cards, is the focal point of my cards.

Simon Says Stamp Flower Buds Embossing Folder Cards

For todays cards I started with some ink blending using Simon’s Positively Saturated Inks.  Once blended, I let them dry for a bit, then I spritzed the back of the cardstock with water, placed it inside the embossing folder and ran it through my Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine.  As this is a very deep embossed image, spritzing with water will help the paper fibers stretch instead of tearing giving you a beautiful flawless finish.

How to create the Simon Says Stamp Flower Buds Embossing Folder Cards #1

Start by ink blending the rainbow across the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ white card front panel.

Next, spritz the back of the panel with water, place inside the embossing folder and run it through the die cutting machine.  Once dry, attach it to a top folding A2 sized card base 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored and folded at 4-1/4′.

PRO-TIP:  this embossing folder is so deep, it will shorten the piece, so be prepared to trim the card base.

Then, if you want the embossing to really stand out, lightly glide a white die ink pad across the top of the embossing to highlight the raised image.

Finally, die cut the Fancy Happy Birthday sentiment die from Audrey Blue cardstock and the shadow from vellum.  glue together and use foam squares to attach to the center of the card front.

Embellish with the NEW Pawsitively Dazzling Gems (man, these things are sparkly – you need some).  This color is SURF

How to create the Simon Says Stamp Flower Buds Embossing Folder Cards #2

Basically the instructions are exactly the same except this card is flipped to a top folding A2 sized card 4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″.

Use the Splendid sentiment die to create the sentiment for this one, and the black printed sentiment is from Sentiment Strips Reverse Congratulations, also part of the new Celebrate release.

PRO-TIP – I ink blended a separate piece to die cut the sentiment so that it would match perfectly with the card

Finally, embellish with the New Rainbow Pawsitively Dazzling Gems.

  1. Beautiful, fabulous, gorgeous, splendid, wonderful, magnificent, awesome,
    terrific, super! Love this folder and what you have done with it!

  2. What a beautiful embossing folder that creates such a simple, but fun card. I love your idea of using vellum for the shadow die and also inking a separate piece for the sentiment to match the card colors.

  3. Wow how beautiful is this!! I purchased (thru your link!) almost everything you used and can’t wait to try this! One thing that really struck me with this project that I just had to ask you about… How the heck did you get such straight blends and evenly blended so all of the columns are exactly the same width??? Did you use a regular blending tool or perhaps one of the mini tools from Altenew? I just loved it and if you don’t mind sharing your secret, I would be very appreciative!
    Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    1. Hi Amy, first, thank you on the cards and thank you for using my link, please send me your mailing address so I can send you a thank you card.
      For the blending, I use the small brushes from Simon Says STamp, their heads are small enough that you can get that many colors across the front of a card and blend them easily.
      Have fun creating
