Here’s a quick post to show you how I use my embossing folders in different ways.
When I take the time to create a card I can’t seem to put it into a plain envelope. I decided I can emboss the left edge of the envelope to add some texture. You don’t want to emboss the entire envelope as it may interfere with the stamps sticking properly.
When I create a card with embellishments that may create a ‘lump’ when I insert it into the envelope, I came up with a solution. I create a folder to cover the card and emboss it to add some texture. When I insert it into the envelope, it helps to hide some of the embellishments and smooth out the envelope. Sometimes this allows me to send the card without additional postage. (This cut hedgehog is actually a button. I simply cut off the back part and adhered it to my card!)
I hope this gives you a couple of ideas on how to stretch your embossing folder uses.
