Quick and Easy Embossing Designs by Gloria Stengel

Hello! It is Gloria with you today. I am sharing a "quick and easy" card! When I collect a new embossing folder, the first thing I do is emboss it, using whatever cardstock I have close by. I also will emboss various types of cardstock to get a feel for how the impression will look with different weights and textures of cardstock. As a result, I collect stacks of embossed patterns! It is easy to pair these embossed prints together to make quick cards!

To create this card follow these steps:

1. Make a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inch card from rust cardstock. Set aside.

2. Emboss metallic cardstock with the Extra Loren Embossing Folder from the Couture Creations Elegance Collection.

3. Using a Couture Creations Sponge Dauber, rub the metallic embossed cardstock with rust ink. Trim the panel to slightly smaller than the card front.

4. Emboss green cardstock with the Poetry Embossing Folder from the Couture Creations Elegance Collection.

5. Using a Couture Creations Sponge Dauber, rub the green embossed cardstock with green ink. Trim the panel to 4 3/4 x 3 inches and mat with rust cardstock. Attach to the left side of the embossed metallic cardstock.

6. Stamp a sentiment with brown ink and die cut with a Couture Creations Rectangle Nesting Die.

7. Mat the sentiment with a rectangle die cut with the Couture Creations Scallop Rectangle Nesting Die. Attach the sentiment to the other panels with Foam Mounting Tape.

8. Wrap twine around the embossed panels and secure. Attach the panels to the card front.

9. Tie a button onto the card with more twine.

You can create this same card with various embossed panels and stamps! Take a rainy afternoon to replenish your card stash with some quick and easy cards....using embossing folders, of course!

Thanks for looking!
