Embossed Slimline Wedding Card
Total elegance with the Paper Butterfly Accents & Thoughtful Moment Hybrid Embossing Folder

Our VIPeeps loved the idea of using rose gold for our metallic today so you see how pretty it is with our greeting and in the butterfly accents.

The sentiment is a breeze to make when you use the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder. I shared a fairly lengthy tutorial in this video you might want to watch.

The way it creates amazing greetings when you use it with foil might just be my fave way to use it!

Let’s find out more about how you can double down on your crafting supplies!

Get More Life From Your Supplies!

First up, creating some interest with the Paper Butterfly Accents and a stamp.

While we used them on this simple sympathy card (a cool fracture card) a few weeks ago, in today’s project, we’re going to make them look totally different!

Although these are currently not available for purchase, they are expected to be back in stock April 15th.

Embossing Powder WOW One!

We stamped an open line image from the Dainty Delight stamp set right over top of our butterfly diecut. Then we sprinkled some rose gold embossing powder to give our butterfly a beautiful texture.

You may be saying to yourself…but I don’t have any rose gold embossing powder.

Don’t panic!

If you’re fresh out of rose gold embossing powder, be sure to check out the video for how to make your own!

This is awfully pretty, but it’s just one way we added a bit more life to the butterfly accents.

Embossing Powder WOW Two!

The second technique is also with embossing powder. It’s to create a foil butterfly like this one you see on the left. Isn’t it stunning? Lots of texture and a shiny, just a little pebbly, surface.

It coordinates so well with our greeting.

You can get this look too.

It’s easy to do with some Versamark ink, your silicone craft sheet, embossing powder and a heat tool. There is one other little tool that makes it a lot easier too. Did you see it in the video?

Double Up On Your Dry Embossing

Our third technique is one we son’t often do.

But with a longer piece of cardstock like we have on our slimline card, our embossing folder is too short. (although I see we’re getting much bigger folders coming in the new catalogue! Wheeeee!).

This one is the Distressed 3D Embossing Folder which carried over from our July to December Mini Catalogue.

But you can easily double up on any of your embossing by carefully placing your paper in your folder and running it through two times. You can see exactly how, along with my top tips, in the video.

Then take in the live replay video for some tricks with the dies and the Thoughtful Moments Hybrid embossing folder to make it easier and quicker to create.
