video tutorial

close-up photos

For all my cards today I used the same embossing folder and the same technique. However you can see that just by changing the color of your cardstock and the color of your ink you can get different looks.

Card 1 : tone on tone

For this background I did ink the top flap of my embossing folder with a darker shade of ink than my cardstock. This adds even more shadows to the embossed design and helps the flowers pop even more.

Card 2 : white ink on craft

This combinations gives you a softer look so you can easily add focal points on top without loosing the beauty of the background.

Love how my poinsettia focal point matches the background design!

Card 3 : gold embossing

Now how stunning is this one? Don’t cover this up! Just stick a sentiment and you are good to go!

So festive and shiny!

    Hi, Vicky –
    I’ve been a little overwhelmed w/ being a teacher in the pandemic conditions of autumn 2020, so I have not visited as often as I would have liked. I’m glad I got to see this edition of your blog and the new Altenew release! Beautiful work from you – as always. Thanks so much for sharing the gorgeous items you made w/ the poinsettia folder.
    Blessings to you now and always –

    Vicky, these cards are simply stunning! The addition of the gold for the greetings and the gold embossing powder add an elegant touch to the beautifully embossed flowers! It is really difficult to pick a favorite design, but I have definitely decided the Poinsettia Embossing Folder is one of my new favorites!
