Many of you just received your Garden Cuttings embossing folders and dies on autoship and had questions about how to use them. We are so glad that you let us know so that we can help you and those who will be purchasing this set this week! Enjoy a more detailed sneak peek at how to use these dies and coordinating embossing folders.
The Garden Cuttings set includes 16 embossing folders (8 folders and 8 borders) as well as 4 coordinating cutting dies. The rose and leaf outline dies pair with the Garden Roses embossing folder. The two border designs coordinate with the Blossom Toss and April Garden folders.
We recommend die cutting first, then embossing. Here’s a quick review on the order of your Cuttlebug plates when die cutting: A plate, rubber mat, B plate, die face up, paper face down, second B plate. Or, you can substitute a C plate for the rubber mat and first B plate.
Here’s a look at the rose, leaf and two borders in their die cut state.
Now, you’ll want to match up the die cut shapes to the appropriate embossing folders.
Now you are ready to emboss! Here’s a quick review of the order of your plates for this step: A plate, B plate, embossing folder with paper inside, second B plate. Run through your Cuttlebug and voila! Here’s the finished result.
I just love this collection, and hope you found this bonus preview helpful!
