If you are like us, you’re ready for all things spring! In the spirit of warmer weather, we are going to craft with our Spring Icon Cut and Emboss Folders. These wonderful folders have the dies embedded inside, so you just have to add your favorite paper inside to create beautiful, dimensional embellishments.
Come see how we like to use these folders!
It’s always fun to work with different materials, and on this card we made fluttering butterflies with vellum!
You can cut down vellum and diecut two at a time to create dimension.
Layer the butterflies by connecting the two pieces with foam adhesive.
Place them on your card and watch them take flight!
Use our matte foil cardstock to make gorgeous, gilded crosses! Cut down your cardstock, place it inside the folder and run through your die cutting and embossing machine.
We really love these folders for quick, easy embellishments!
Combine a card base, layers and a few well-placed diecuts.
Layer your smaller cross on top of the larger one with foam adhesive.
Find the perfect spot for it on your decorated card.
Add a butterfly for the perfect finishing touch!
Need a few more ideas? We’ve got you covered!
Add a trio of beautiful butterflies that surround your message!
Show off the details by sanding a non-solid core paper, and use some of your shiny papers for an extra pop!
Layer even more diecuts with coordinating embellishments.
Here are two St. Patrick’s Day cards to inspire your March crafting!
