Today I want to show you how to get perfect placement with embossing folders and a die cutting machine! Check it out in my ultra quick video.
Do you have large image embossing folders like these ones?
There’s no doubt they are gorgeous! And so lovely to put as the focal point on any card like I did on this one.
But maybe you don’t want to always have the full wreath on the card? Or maybe you want to make 25 of these designs as a gift and don’t want to worry about the placement each time?
Let me show you in under TWO minutes how you can get exact placement every time with this simple tip!

I used this exact tip on this card too.
Now let’s take a closer look at today’s pretty card.
I feel a bit sorry for supplies like the Seasonal Wreath. How many of us NEVER pull it out for any time of year except Christmas?
Well I want to convince you it’s got way more potential than that! Here’s two fast tips for how to change it up.
1. Change Your Colour, Change Your Card!
I chose spring-like colours for my card today. Light lavender and purple instantly change the feel.
Want a fall card? Use oranges and browns!
2. Use Different Stamps
Instead of a snowflake or holly berries, I added a stamped butterfly accent. Stamp a pumpkin for fall or a sun or seashell for summer!
I hope you can see it’s an embossing folder that deserves a spot in your card making supplies.
