Use an embossing folder at Back to Basics

For this fortnight's challenge at Back to Basics, we would like you to use an embossing folder.

The folder I have used is one of the newer designs spawned by the old favourite "That folder". This one, and the sentiment stamps to go with it, was a cover mount on Papercraft Essentials earlier this year.


I embossed it twice, once with Core-dinations card, black with a pink core, and again with a snippet of white   that just covered the central curved band. I trimmed the excess away from the white and stamped the sentiment and a couple of tiny butterflies in the smooth space.

Then I sanded the black card to allow the pink to show through, lightly sanding the edges too, and assembled the card. I finished it off with a die cut butterfly, using a Spellbinders die.

I am sharing this with
