I have a couple of tips with the folders. Keep your paper in the folder while stamping the dots (or whatever shapes you want to use). It will give you a little stability with the debossed letters. And press down lightly so that the colors don't get inside the letters. Oh, and if you get a little bit of ink in the letters, just take a white gel pen and write over it! It's that easy.
These two little folders can easily make a WOW card and there are so many options. They are only $9 US. Stampin' Up! has a few card samples in the store. Go and check them out here: Celebrations Duo Textured Embossing Folders
Here are my samples. Please let me know your favorite! I used the Fiesta Textured Embossing folder in the first. Colors are Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry. I added Metallic Enamel Shapes as well.
In the second one, I used Dapper Denim, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist. Again, I added some Enamel Shapes.
In the third, I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Fresh Florals dsp. I used Flirty Flamingo as a base with a panel of Peekaboo Peach. Then I tied on some Flirty Flamingo ribbon and Lemon Lime Twist Ombre ribbon.
Don't forget....for every $50 you spend in July, you will receive a $5 coupon to use in August. That's a great deal! There are no limits to how many you can receive. Check it out here:
