Spellbinders Floral Swag Embossing Folder

Hi crafty friends, and welcome back.  Today’s clean and super simple Christmas Card share is created with the Spellbinders Floral Swag Embossing Folder.  This folder is stunning and has a really deep embossed image making it perfect for adding a rub of VersaMark Ink and heat embossing the highlights.

Try this card for mass production of your holiday cards.  It only takes a few minutes to create with beautiful elegant results.  Also, this card was part of my giant Distress Oxide Ink Spray day last week and I shared a video for making these backgrounds a couple of days ago here:

How to create the Spellbinders Floral Swag Embossing Folder Holiday Card.

Start with a piece of watercolor paper 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 and spritz with water and then Distress Oxide Sprays in Fired Brick and Picked Raspberry.  Set aside to dry

Next, place inside the embossing folder and run through the die cutting machine.

Then, rub an anti static pouch across the entire surface of the card front.

Embossing the Raised image

Start, by using your finger to lightly rub VersaMark Ink over the raised embossed image.

Next, cover the section with gold embossing powder, shake off the excess and heat set.

PRO TIP – I did this step in sections so I could remember where I rubbed.

Finally, attach to a top folding white A2 sized card base.

Adding the Sentiment to the Spellbinders Floral Swag Embossing Folder Card.

Start by using Yana’s Christmas Sentiments plates and hot foil them in gold onto black cardstock.

Next, cut out with the coordinating die

Finally, use foam squares to attach to the bottom right corner of the card

Then, embellish with some gold mix Color Essential Gems.
