Embossing Folder Tips, Tricks & Techniques Class


Welcome to the Embossing folder Tips, Tricks & Techniques Class!

Using Embossing folders on your Handmade Cards is a great way to add interest and visual texture. There are so many different Techniques you can use to add extra interest to your Embossed Pieces. This class will cover 15 Different Embossing Techniques you can use on your Handmade Cards!  This class focuses on each one of  the Embossing technique but I do show you how that technique piece has been used on a finished card so that you can see it in use. I do not show you how to create the finished cards but the designs are super simple to keep the focus on the Embossed background.

This class comes with a Supply List PDF. The PDF has Pictures of Cards created with each of the Embossing Techniques taught in this class as well as the supplies to create each one. Those supplies are linked to where you can purchase them if you choose. You can find the Supply List PDF Link with the Introduction Video.

Note: The Supply List lets you know what supplies were used for each of the Techniques in this class. You can easily substitute different embossing folders and ink colours for each of these techniques. I use a Big shot for my embossed backgrounds and share the stacking needed for the different Embossing folders used. If you create with a different die cutting/embossing machine you will need to find out the stacking for the machine you use as I do not own other machines.
