An Embossing Folder is for Life...Not Just For Christmas!!

Just 'cos things are packaged or directed at Christmas dosen't mean that is all they can be used for!
Some dies and embossing folders can work out quite costly if just limited to Christmas designs.
The following pair of cards are made just using Christmas embossing folders!

You may recall that the lovely people over at Hobbycraft sent me 2 sets of embossing folders. This card is made using the Sizzix Winter Set #2 - 656353 all i have added is a few flat back gems.
Tthe 2 folders used are starry night for the background and Phrase, Warm Wishes for the sentiment.

This card could still be given at christmas but you can wish someone warm wishes any time of the year (esp in this country!!)

The second card below uses 2 more embossing folders

One folder is from the previous Winter Set #2 which is called Phrase, wishing you Joy, Love and Peace, I have just cut the heart out of the embossed image and 3d foam mounted it

The background uses the snowballs embossing folder from the Sizzix winter set - 656352 I love this embossing folder to bits and am sure i will wear it out!

The patterned strip is from some Anna Griffin Isabelle border stickers which are fab! They are such good quality, really thick and easy to use!

So remember an embossing folder is for life and not just for christmas!
