After a week off work recuperating from a too busy couple of months, take a look at these simple triple embossed handmade cards. Like several of my posts, today I want you to get a bit more out of your crafting supplies! This time, both your embossing folders and punches!
Plus since it’s Keep It Simple Sunday, I’ve got the full measurements and step by step instructions for you! Read on…
But first, can you pick out the three different embossed elements?
- the embossed Layered Leaves panel
- shiny white embossed image and words
- a textured vase showcasing the Lace Dynamic embossing folder
With this mix of dry and heat embossing it’s the deep impressions on the vase that stand out. This one even looks like there’s a little face on the top don’t you think? (Olaf from Frozen comes to mind for me! 🤪)
On the one above, the DEBOSSED side is facing out (indented flower). This one is reversed and the EMBOSSED side is facing out.
Pretty fun aren’t they?
OK, here’s all the deets to you can make one yourself.
Cuttin’ It Up!
- Whisper White Thick cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Whisper White regular cardstock – 3 3/4″ x 5″, scraps
- Brights cardstock – 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Let’s Make It!
- Emboss your piece of regular Whisper White cardstock with the Layered Leaves or Country Floral dynamic embossing folder. TIP: You can get the gorgeous Country Floral folder shown above free now until March 31st with a $60 CDN order.
- Glue to the center front of your folded card.
- Run your smaller scrap of Whisper White cardstock through your Big Shot with the Lace Dynamic embossing folder. TIP: Ensure you are only using your Big Shot Platform and only ONE standard cutting pad with the dynamic embossing folders.
- Line your Vase Builder punch over top of an embossed area that appeals to you and punch. (Note you will have some waste so decide which vase shape appeals to you the most and center in on that one.)
- Stamp words on top left with Versamark ink. TIP: Rub lightly with your Embossing Buddy before starting to stamp.
- Place punched out vase on bottom right to eyeball placement of stems. Remove, then stamp leaves two times so they will extend above the vase with Versamark ink. TIP: Stamp two times with the pointy part of the leaf pointing up, then turn stamp upside down to stamp third one.
- Sprinkle with white embossing powder and heat.
- Adhere to front of card with dimensionals. Adhere vase over top of leaves with mini dimensionals.
I enjoyed this card so much, we made some in my last Koffee and a Kard class. Here are some of the designs. See how some have a tulip or a sprig from the Sprig Punch for a bit more foliage. A few sparkly embellishments fancy them up even more.
Each of these colours comes from the Brights assortment package of cardstock. These assortment packages are a super way to get a taste of all the colours in a family. Isn’t it great that every colour looks just as wonderful as the one next to it? That white embossing really pops!
Your Turn Now!
Is your mind whirling with all the possibilities? I’m curious which punch you’re going to start with?
You might already have the Vivid Vases stamp set and Vase Builder punch. And if you do, this card is definitely for you! And if not, I’d love it if you purchased your stamps and punch with me to make your own! Thank You!Simple Triple Embossed Handmade Cards

I think the draw with these pretty cards is the simplicity. With some unexpected design details that makes the recipient take a little closer peek at what you created!
