two more textured impressions cards
I made a couple more cards using the new Sizzix textured impressions embossing folders that I've talked about in a couple of previous posts. (Please note: these should not be confused with the Texturz texture plates or the Simple Impressions folders. These are different and are like the Cuttlebug embossing folders.) I just wanted to show more of the designs and again show how these folders will emboss an entire A2 size card front.
The background embossing of the above card was made using the A2 size folder of Wedding set 2. The sentiment is also an embossing folder from that set. The decorative borders were made using a Fiskars embossing border punch.
For this card I pulled out one of the Christmas sets. I thought this one could be a bit more winter than Christmas necessarily. Again, these snowflakes float over the whole card front. The image in the center was made using a smaller folder from that set. I accented the snowflakes in that image with Diamond Stickles. The sentiment is by Verve and stamped using Memento dye ink.
These embossing folders can make card-making a very fast process!
