VIDEO | Eclipse Technique with Embossing Folders

Hello there, today I have a card and video to share with you where I am creating an eclipse look with 3D embossing folders. I have done this technique with stamps and dies but I have never tried it with embossing folders ... spoiler alert! I love it! 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by taking a panel of white cardstock and running it through my die cutting machine with the embossing folder in the Altenew Craft Your Life Seasonal Blooms Project Kit. I then ran it back through my die cutting machine with the Altenew Terrific Tags Die. I added ink blending to the tag with Altenew Inks and Altenew Small Ink Blending Tools.

I used Sunray and Snapdragon from the Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Ink set, Rubellite and Razzleberry from the Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Ink set and Midnight Violet from the Altenew Shades of Purple Crisp Dye Inks set. I ran the tag back through my die cutting machine with the embossing folder to really enhance that embossing. I then added white pigment ink on top with a foam ink blending tool.

I added the background panel on to an A2 white card base with tape runner. I then cut the tag a further four times from white cardstock and adhered them on on top of another for dimension. They were added on to the card and then the embossed tag on top. I added twine through the top and tied in a bow. I die cut the thanks sentiment from the die set in the Altenew Craft Your Life Seasonal Blooms Project Kit from white cardstock with Altenew Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet on the back.

I cut that twice and popped one on top of another for more dimension. This was added to the shadow cut from vellum. It was added to the card with tiny dabs of glue. I stamped the accompanying sentiment from the Altenew Enchanted Iris Stamp Set on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder, heat set and cut it in to a strip. It was adhered to the card with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
