Cards Featuring Embossing Folders

We shared with you on Saturday some unique ways to use your Cuttlebug, but now I'd like to share with you my favorite reason for using my Cuttlebug--embossing.

Today, I have the pleasure of sharing with you some fabulous cards using embossing folders by our design team members. Let's get right to it!

Penny chose a mono-chromatic theme and lots of Cuttlebug embossing to create this card. The base layer of the card is embossed with the Cuttlebug folder Paisley, the three panels are embossed in Swiss Dots and the letters are embossed with Paisley again. The outside of the card is dusted with a matching blue chalk. A silver baby rattle is tied by a coordinating blue ribbon. The interior sentiment says joy an is embossed in the same manner. Cricut Cartriges used are George and Winter Woodlands, Papers are also Cricut papers.

Deanne used her Spots and Dots embossing folder to emboss the bottom portion of her card.

Brenda used the Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder to emboss the background on this card, and the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder to emboss the die cut images on this card.

Kim used her baby embossing folder and some baby pink ink to create this baby girl card. She simply inked the inside of the folder before she embossed the cardstock. She loves the look the paper gets from this technique. Then she finished the card off with a cute ribbon and charm.

Here are three of my favorite cards where I've used embossing folders.I tried give you all a little variety ranging from embossing everything on the card (base, layers, and embellies), embossing pattern papers, to embossing the matting to add some dimension and elegance.

Hope you all enjoyed the embossing inspiration! Now that you are all inspired by the embossing, it's time to take that spark and start your own embossing creations, but with layouts. We are currently seeking submissions for layouts that using embossing on them. The deadline to submit is Sunday, November 21, 2010.
