I started “BIG” with the first card; it has quite a few layers, a bit over the top–but it’s NOT hard. Just takes a few steps. I just had to show you the glory of this awesome hybrid embossing folder up front!

The tricky part is figuring out in what order to do things. (make sure to watch the video for the best explanation)

  1. Use die to cut out “shape” (first picture above)
  2. Insert this piece into the embossing folder, making sure to line up
  3. Run through Cut & Emboss Machine – now this piece is cut and embossed! (middle picture above)

To complete the card, I also embossed the 4″ x 5 1/4″ layer (with no cutting) and adhere that to the card front. Then the piece that I cut & embossed was layered over it.

And finally, stamp the images on a scrap of Basic White and cut out with dies, and adhere.

I know that sounds like a lot, but the video will make it seem much easier.

Hybrid Embossing Folder Card Version 2

This card is very similar to the first, but a bit different. It does not have the “cut out/embossed” layer.

  • Basic White Embossed Layer (not cut): 3 3/4″ x 5″ (I started at 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, embossed, then trimmed down)

I kept this card really clean and used only the embossed layer. The embossed layer is popped up using dimensionals and then the greeting layer is down inside the “frame.” Another beautiful look with these products.
