Birthday Ruffles

Adding ink to an embossing folder can give you some surprising results. Thoughts? 

   A Grand Kid

   Pool Party A-2
   Basic White 5-1/4 x 4 (2), 2-1/2 x 1-1/4

   Petal Pink
   Pool Party
   Real Red

   Dry Embossing
   Die Cutting

   Cascading Ruffles 3D Embossing Folder
   Stitched Rectangles Framelits
   Pool Party Baker's Twine 36"
   Frosted Flower Embellishments

First, I added Petal Pink to the inside of the Cascading Ruffles embossing folder. I gently placed my Basic White panel inside, making sure it did not move. I ran it through the dry embossing machine and set it aside. I then rinsed the embossing folder and dried it.

Next, I stamped and die cut my sentiment, using Real Red ink and the Stitched Rectangles Framelits.

I then sponged the edges with a bit of Pool Party.

I took 36 inches of Baker's twine from my stash and wrapped it around the embossed panel. I tied it off with a bow. I fanned out the strands of twine for a bit of a different look.

Next, I adhered the panel to the Pool Party card front and attached the sentiment using dimensionals.

Lastly, I added a Frosted Flower embellishment to the sentiment and adhered the other Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I do love this technique of adding ink to an embossing folder, and also your twine treatment. Lovely, Sally.

    1. Thank you so much, Sharon. You are too kind. Thank you for visiting and taking the time to share. Much appreciated.

  2. What a fun emboss folder and super color you added to it.

    1. Thank you Lisa. It is a 3D embossing folder. I tried adding color to both sides and didn't really notice a difference. They remind me of curtains.
