Cut.. Stamp.. Emboss.  That’s the order that works best for me.  On today’s set of cards the shaped borders were cut first with a couple of different dies from SU’s Adorning Accents collection.

Next the borders were stamped with the coordinating stamps for each cut design.  And lastly the borders were embossed with the coordinating embossing folders.

On the birthday card I used the embossing folder twice to give a double embossed edge on both designs.

When running the cardstock and embossing folders through my embossing machine a second time, it tended to flatten the first embossed design.  So while the cardstock was placed on a soft mat (Ornare Piercing Pad was used here),  I traced the embossing tool over the embossed areas pressing gently to help redefine the original embossing.

And before you go… just wanted to show you a fun paper rainbow that my granddaughters made.  Their mom took a picture of them next to the display.  So fun!!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!

  1. Love your cards and blog. I wanted to share with you that instead of using the stylus like you did here, I put the cardstock back in the folder I used first and just squeeze it with my fingers and it pops it back out.
