Vintage Stampin' Up! Birthday Card
Embossing Folders Stamping Technique using Brayer and You're Lovely Stamp Set

Beautifully Baroque and embossing fabric.

Today I have another way to use your embossing folder: embossing on fabric. I love the effect this gives.

To create this look:

  • Adhere your fabric to cardstock first. I find that cotton patchwork fabrics work really well). I adhere those with our Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets which you will find in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue (see below). You could also use Multipurpose Glue (see below) but just make sure it dries before embossing.
  • Then it's just a matter of putting it through the Bigshot in the same way you would cardstock (I haven't found I have had to change the plate sandwich).

To finish the card off, here's what I have done (products are all shown at the end of the post)

  • Used the scalloped flower die on coordinations cardstock and sanded the top of the petals. I also placed an adhesive pearl in the centre as well as some glitter glass (see below) which is great for a vintage look.
  • Added some glace, gold bakers twine (I LOVE this new twine from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalologue) and sequin trim.
  • My greeting is gold embossed and is from the Hello Lovely stamp set.

Hope you enjoyed today's card. Below you will find a link to the Stampin' Up! products I have used.
