Hello friends! I had so much fun using the new Pine Branches Embossing Folder to create an embossed card base on two unique cardstocks and posting to CutCardStock.com.
How different the cardstock choice makes these.
Die Cut Poinsettia Card
Embossed Card Base
Start with Kale Cardstock A2 panel. Use the Pine Needles Embossing Folder to create an embossed card base. Use White Pigment Ink and an Ink Blender to spotlight the pine needles.
Die Cut the Pieces
Cut the poinsettia flowers with Dark Red Cardstock, the branches with Glitter Opulent Opal Cardstock and Bay Leaf Cardstock. Glue the layers of the flowers together and used Gold Cardstock for the floral centers.
Assemble the Card
Attach the green pine base to an A2 base made with 100 lb. Natural Cougar Cardstock. Gold heat emboss the sentiment of your choice on the lower right front.
Attach the blooms and greenery to the upper left side.
Don’t Forget the Envelope!
I’ve discovered embossed envelope flaps! Insert the envelope flap into the embossing folder and fold to the back. Run it through your die cut machine. Choose a forest green ink and an ink blender brush to color the raised area!
Stamped Embossed Card Base
Set up the Base
Emboss and Neenah Dessert Storm Cardstock A2 card panel with the Pine Needles Embossing Folder to create an embossed card base. Using a blender brush, add color to the branches with Rustic Wilderness Distress Ink.
Design the Scene
Stamp the tree with the green ink and the snowman with black pigment ink. Add color to the snowman using Distress Watercolor Pencils and a small amount of water to blend.
Assemble the Card
Attach the card panel to an A2 cardbase cut using the Neenah Dessert Storm Cardstock. Use white Gesso to flick snowflakes on the scene. Use Red Drops to add a few bulbs to the tree. Add the sentiment of your choice. I used Sentiment Strips from Tim Holtz Ideology.
Don’t Forget the Envelope
Follow the same process as above to emboss and color the Nenah Desert Storm Envelope!
