I have fun post to share with you today. You have seen many cards with Embossing Folders by now. However, do you ever wonder what to do with the extra piece that you get after the dry-embossing?
I am using the Blossoming Branches Embossing Folder as an example.
The size of Altenew's 3D Embossing Folder is rather large (6'x6'). I have noticed the increased size in all of the latest Embossing Folders. So, why not use every inch of the inked dry-embossed image?
While I created the "Love You" card, I trimmed off the extra piece and thought it was too good to go to waste. Therefore, an idea came to my head! Use that piece and turn it into a bookmark!
I added Wild Flora Washi Tape at the bottom of the bookmark. I then stamped and inked up the edges to make the entire bookmark look more cohesive. You can easily create gift tags or labels or even another card! It's so simple and yet perfect for us paper-crafters since the majority of us like to "save scraps". There is just MORE reason to love Embossing Folders. You can easily apply this idea to all of your oversized folders.
Great use of a beautiful peice. Too good to trash.
These are gorgeous! Love the embossing folder!
Great technique and gorgeous colors!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful coloring on that card, Virginia - and such a great idea about the bookmark and tag!!!
Beautiful card and bookmark! I was just looking at the linen one and thinking about how gorgeous the Altenew folders are!! You are so good to inspire all of us!
What a wonderful card - simply lovely. Love the bookmark idea - nice bonus!
Stretching your creative muscles again, I see. Making a bookmark out of the leftovers is a a brilliant idea. This is such a gorgeous folder. Letting a bit go to waste would be a shame.
Love this idea of using the extra piece to make a bookmark.
These are so pretty! It's a beautiful embossing folder! Great colors!
What a great idea to make a bookmark. I had wondered why the larger size for the new embossing folders, but just was thinking people were using them for 5 x 7 cards. What a great bookmark. I love to make them as a little gift to stick in a birthday card. Now I will have to make them even fancier with your great embossed bookmark idea.
Beautiful embossing folder and I love the gorgeous colors on this card too. I need to look closer at my embossing folders I guess. I love this idea.
Such a great idea!
Nice ideas for how to create with the embossing folder.
Great idea for bookmark. This folder works perfectly for it.
