Finally Friday Challenge #6

Finally Friday Challenge 
" Show Me"

Show me what you can do with embossing folders
Make any card you want using embossing folders. You can use as many folders as you'd like.

Heres my first idea for you
I used stripped embossing folder along the side, I use my brayer to color the strips in pistashio, then I used the new Elegant dots embossing folder on the bottom of the card.
Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder138287
Price$7.5, 

It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot, and out comes cardstock with a textured, delicate design. Textured Impressions Embossing Folders make deep, crisp impressions—great for card fronts and accents.

* 1 folder


Added the flower from "Touch of Textures" stamp set, some ribbon and Thank You Stamp.
touches Of Texture Clear-Mount Stamp Set143251
Price$33.00

The textures and elements in this stamp set will add dimension and character to any of your cards. This set features an eclectic array of useful and fun styles.

Our clear-mount stamps
* Are made of the same premium rubber as our wood-mount stamps.
* Have deeply etched images so you get a superior stamped impression each time.
* Are precut so you don't have to trim.
* Are repositionable; temporarily mount them on clear blocks for stamping, then remove them for storage.
* Save space—you need only one set of blocks for all your clear-mount stamps (blocks sold separately).
* Come packaged in cases with images on the spine for easy storage and quick reference.






Your Turn !!!



Anne Marie's beautiful creations
 Her first card she used embossing folder " Elegant Bouquet" and stamp set
" Up in the air"
Inside embossing folder is "designer frames"

Anne Marie used blue paper, embossed it and brayered with white over it..I'm loving this Look !




 Anne Marie's second card is layers of embossed papers.
Very eloquent !
