Simple Embossed Greeting Cards

Embossed Greeting Cards

Simple but Extraordinary Embossed Greeting Cards.

If you haven’t noticed, I love making cards.

Even though I’m mainly a “Clean and Simple” cardmaker,

I do enjoy adding a little texture from time to time.

Texture adds dimension.

And there’s no better way to add texture than to use an Sizzix Embossing Folder by Eileen Hull.

Eileen’s New 3D Tablecloth Embossing Folder* creates an elegant textured background

for this Simple Birthday Card.  The words “Happy Birthday were die-cut using

Eileen’s New Alphanumeric Die* and Ultra Metallic Gold Adhesive Craft Vinyl* 

from StyleTechCraft.

Embossed Greeting Cards

For this simple Birthday Card, I used the Woven Leather Embossing Folder*.

  • To use an embossing folder, place a piece of paper inside the folder.
  • Place the embossing folder into the Sizzix Big Shot Die Cutting Machine*.  You’ll need to adjust the layers on the plate for the thickness of the folder.  Crank the handle to run the embossing folder through the machine.
  • Open the folder for a beautifully embossed piece of paper.

I got my Sewing Machine* out for the next two cards.

I’ve wanted to make a quilt card for a while.

A quilt card is a great way to use up small scraps of paper.

Quilt Card Directions:

  • I put my paper through a Xyron 3″ Disposable Sticker Maker* to make the paper into sticker paper.
  • Cut them into 1″ squares.  I laid the squares out first to play with the quilt pattern.
  • To make a 4″ square quilt, cut a 4″ base to lay the squares on.
  • Stick the squares onto the base and trim if necessary to even up the edges.
  • Sew in between the squares using a sewing machine.
  • Adhere the quilt onto paper layers and a 5″ x 5″ card.

This pink quilt card is one of my new favorites. 

It reminds me of an old quilt I used to have on my bed.

It’s soft, sweet, and feminine.

It makes me want to curl up with a good book on a lazy day.
