ICS Blog Hop Trucking Along Embossing

Welcome to our Inspire, Create, Share blog hop!  Tonight we are sharing techniques with you to inspire your crafting options.

I am sharing how to use a portion of an embossing folder to create a different use for embossed layers.

I liked how the diagonal lines look like a snowfall effect.

See how it is only on a portion of the interior layer that peeks out to the front of the z-fold?

I embossed just the right-side edge with the diagonal stripes texture.
Tip: use washi tape to place the layer into place in the embossing folder.  This layer and folder will be the full width of the opening of the Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine.  Beware to place them into the machine with straight alignment so that the side of the machine doesn’t push the cardstock out of placement in the embossing folder.

My supply list is at the end of my post.  I hope you will leave me a comment about this technique!

I like how it looks embossed from the front, but when you open it, there is still a place to write your note to the recipient. Fun card!
