Oh boy!!! These new 3D embossing folders are just beautiful!!! First let’s look at the cards I made and then I will get to how to use these NEW 3D folders!
This is the Leafy 3D Embossing Folder:
I lightly watercolored the leaves to give them dimension.
Here is the Origami Folds 3D Embossing folder:
Here is another card with the Origami Folds 3D Embossing folder:
Next up is the Beautiful Blooms 3D Embossing folder:
I used white opaque ink and swiped gently over the flowers with a small dauber to give them a white washed look. So easy! That’s the We Dance Glimmer Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set for the sentiment.
The best way to use these 3D folder is with the NEW Spellbinders Universal Plate System.
This is from their website: The Universal Plate System is a set of seven plates that work in manual die-cutting machines such as the Platinum™ ®, Platinum 6™ ® and Big Shot™ ® Machines. The new longer size allows versatility when die-cutting and embossing. It will accommodate slimline dies and larger embossing folders. It will also work with most brands of thin metal cutting dies, steel rule dies, 2D and 3D Embossing Folders by layering the plates. It will be the only plate system you will need!
I just ordered my Universal Plate System. That means I created these cards before I had them. I used the base plate of my Platinum machine, the rubber mat and a few cardstock shims to make it work. Not going to lie…it was a pain and the embossed images are not quite as crisp as I would like. I can’t wait for those plates to a get here. Now I can emboss with any type folder!
