Happy Birthday

The past month I’ve been feverishly working to replace my diminished supply of birthday cards, I really love the Tin Tile embossing folder, this embossing folder is so beautiful it carries this fast, simple design. The addition of a die cut and a little sparkle and voila, done!

The Tin Tile Embossing folder is one of our “Dynamic” folders meaning the impression is very deep. We recommend lightly spritzing your cardstock before running it through the Big Shot to create a really impressive impression. Be sure to always run the fold of any embossing folder through the Big Shot first, putting the wrong end first could damage your embossing folder.

I used dimensional’s to adhere the Whisper White card stock to the Basic Black and regret I didn’t use Tear & Tape because of the deep embossing the Whisper White doesn’t lay flat, argh…next time.
