These dry embossing folders are soo easy to use. I HIGHLY recommend this product. This folder is made out of a durable plastic and easily stored. I find myself reaching for these all the time, for cards, lo's, atc's or just about everything. They add a real elegance to your project with VERY little work. I also have found out if you don't have a cuttlebug machine you can also use a rolling pin over these and wala this too embosses! The embossed paper can easily be inked, sanded and altered to add a different look to your projects also. The only thing I wish about this product was that maybe it was a little bit bigger at times.
I already own a Cricut and I couldn't justify spending $80 on a Cuttlebug just to get a few embossing folders.. So I bought this folder and put a piece of paper in it, then pressing down pretty hard, rubbing my Fiskars Texturing Tool back and forth over the top of the folder and it worked well enough to use on my valentines day cards and I saved a lot of money!
I love this embossing folder! It has been so fun to use. I love using it to make cards. The best thing about this embossing folder is that you can emboss basically anything! You can use it on cardstock, heavy duty aluminum foil, vellum, acetate, and whatever else you can think of!
This is one of the first folders I bought, and it's my favorite! Cuttlebug embossing folders are so easy to use and really add that extra something to your projects! I've used this not only as a background but also on cake frosting and Santa's beard on cards I've made! Love it!
This made a really great texture to cut up and use for framing pictures in a lo. I chalked it lightly in a darker shade of the paper color and then chalked the edges in a dark brown to add a pseudo 3D effect. Try it and you will love it!
