My card today features two IOE Embossing Folders. I used the small square thank you portion of the Thank You Wishes Folder and I used the large dotted border from the Birthday Oval Folder. I used the Square IOE Plates to isolate the portion of the folders I wanted. I used a soft bristle brush with antique linen distress ink to enhance the embossing and really make it ‘pop’.
The dotted border embossing was a large rectangle on the embossing plate, but I simply sent the folder through half way, removed it and then flipped the paper around and lined up the dots to continue the pattern to create a square instead. If you use your imagination, you can come up with even more uses for these embossing folders.
