Adding Texture to New Horizons

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my video replay of last nights Facebook LIVE along with the two cards. I showcasing the New Horizons Designer Paper and “embossing folders” … the folders will texture the paper so it looks like a canvas picture!

If you look closely you will see I actually die cut the mountains and embossed it right with the paper!! So much you can do with this …

Ok … just a little teaser there! Let’s take a look at the video. You can grab a cup of coffee (or your favorite beverage) and join me …

It is such a simple technique but creates such an amazing impact to your card. It’s as if the paper was designed for embossing it.


  • Basic Black: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ Scored at 4-1/4″ fold in half
  • Designer Paper: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (to be embossed)
  • Basic White: 5-1/4″ x 4″ (inside of card)

The watercoloring look of this designer paper was made for this technique … I know I said that earlier but I think it looks so cool together!!

So I don’t take away from the designer paper, I like to use vellum … it allows an even flow of the imagery. I embossed with Gold Embossing powder and used the Label Me Lovely punch because I like the simple shape but it’s not a boring square! lol

I added the beautiful brass butterflies to draw your eye around the card and to bring it in to the focal point, which is our greeting.

So simple yet so pretty! Who knew that such a simple technique like using an embossing folder would create such a difference! I think we know (because we buy lots of embossing folders, but we forget we can emboss designer paper!!

Thank you for hanging out with me!! Have an amazing day ~
