Swaps for Milton Keynes 2018 ” Embossing folders”

 Card using an embossing folder for swapping at Milton Keynes

Here’s the last of my swaps for Milton Keynes event. Hope you have enjoyed looking at them all.

For my take on a card using an embossing folder I was set on using the 5 newest in-colours.  I decided it’s just too easy to use embossing folders to create amazing background details so for this project I would try and bring the embossed card forward.

So here is my torn bauble cards which allow the torn embossed paper to be an equal as it pushes in front of the bauble.

I love torn edges especially around Christmas time as it reminds me of snow and there is something warm and comforting about a torn edge it’s soft and fluffy!  OK I may be going a bit over board but hey it’s me!

When you can use matching card, ribbon and blender pens to colour how can you go wrong.  Featuring each of the wonderful bold new in-colours I soon had 5 cards but what do to for the 6th?  It just had to be a smart black and white. Crisp clean and simple cards featuring the wonderful softly falling embossing folder.

A simple black and white card is a great contrast after all that strong bold colour.

Look at the wonderful black sheer ribbon with it’s sparkly silver speckles. I know I will be using this lots over the festive period. It simply shimmers in the lights and will look fab on presents. I’m thinking brown paper packages tied up with…….  not string but rather this ribbon, for very sophisticated table gift at dinner parties. Great for some 20’s style black and white crackers too.
