Passion Embossing Folder Week - Gelato Watercolor Effect with Dana

Welcome to the Passion Embossing Folder Feature Week! We're highlighting projects created with the gorgeous Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder every day this week. Each member of the CSW Distributors Design Team has created a card using the Passion Embossing Folder and we can't wait to share our designs with you. To start the week off, we're sharing a card tutorial! Enjoy!

Hi! Dana here today sharing a fun technique using the Passion Embossing Folder, from the Couture Creations Fine Designs Collection, and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos to create a beautiful watercolor effect.

Step One: Gather several colors of Gelatos, a piece of white cardstock, a mister filled with water and the Passion Embossing Folder.

Step Two: Lightly mist the back inside portion of the Passion Embossing Folder with water and apply Gelatos color to the raised floral pattern. Note: I used Raspberry, Watermelon, Metallic Melon and Banana Gelatos.

Step Three: Carefully place a piece of white cardstock on top of the colored side of the embossing folder, fold the top half of the embossing folder down and apply pressure to transfer the color to the cardstock.

Step Four: Remove the cardstock from the embossing folder and set aside to dry. Trim the cardstock to fit onto a card base and embellish to finish.

Thanks for stopping by today! Please stop by every day this week for more projects featuring the Passion Embossing Folder!
