Create an Awesome Card with the Delightful Doily Hybrid Embossing Folder

Create an Awesome Card with the Delightful Doily Hybrid Embossing Folder

Happy Saturday friends! Today I am sharing a card I made for the Luv 2 Stamp Artisan Design Team. If you aren’t familiar with our Hybrid Embossing Folders-you are missing out. They are amazing. For this card I have used Delightful Doily from the Annual Catalog. I started by cutting 1/2 inch strips of cardstock and alternated them on piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Once I had them adhered, I put the panel inside the Delightful Doily Embossing Folder and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.


Next I put one of the dies inside the embossing folder along with a piece of Copper Clay cardstock and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to emboss and cut the large doily in one pass. To complete the card, I stamped a sentiment and accent from the Color & Contour stamp set onto a piece of Basic White and cut it out with the circle die from the Delightful Doily Hybrid Embossing Folder. Next, I added some splatter with White Craft Ink, some gold Festive Pearls and a piece of Gold Trim.

If you’d like to see how to use our Hybrid Embossing Folders, I have a video here showing how to use Sweet Citrus. Still have questions? Let me know in the comments below.

Next week I will have a ton of new goodies arriving from the Mini Catalog. I am so excited to start creating and sharing things with you in my new YouTube Series starting August 5th. While I can’t show you the inside of the catalog, I can show you the cover. Feast your eyes on this! I mean-WOW!

From Empty Nest To Full Heart: The Joy of Cardmaking

From Empty Nest To Full Heart: The Joy of Cardmaking

With the kids out of the house, it’s time to find a new hobby that brings joy to your life. Look no further than cardmaking, a fun and creative activity that will let you express your artistic side while also brightening someone else’s day.

Getting started with cardmaking is easy. All you need are a few basic supplies  like cardstock, adhesive, scissors, and embellishments. Once you have those, you can let your creativity run wild. The possibilities are endless! (You might also want to invest in some basic tools like a paper trimmer, and bone folder. These tools will help you create clean, precise lines and folds in your cards, which is important for a polished finished product).

And don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself “artistic.” Cardmaking is all about having fun and trying new things. Plus, there are plenty of tutorials online to help guide you along the way. Check out my free classes on Youtube or Facebook! I go LIVE each Wednesday at 2PM PT. Replays are available if you can’t catch me Live. And I also share projects here on my blog with a complete product list and measurements.

What’s great about cardmaking is that you can make something that is completely unique and personalized. Whether it’s for a birthday, holiday, or just because, you can add your own special touch and make the recipient feel extra special.

And let’s be honest, who doesn’t love receiving a handmade card? It shows that you put time and effort into creating something special just for them.

In addition to being a fun and rewarding hobby, cardmaking can also be a great way to connect with others. Become a member of my community or check out my YouTube channel to meet other like-minded individuals who share your passion for creativity.

So why not give cardmaking a try? It’s a great way to add some color to your life, express your creativity, and connect with others. Who knows, you might just discover a new passion and make some amazing friends along the way!
