Hello & Thank You Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh yes … I was AWOL the past 2 days, I was doing some personal training for my stamping business! It’s amazing how much free training there is out there, but a box of goodies came so I just had to play!! So I made 2 quick cards that I would like to share with you today.”

I was intrigued by the new “Thanks & Hello” Embossing Folder so I added it to my order this past week and wanted to try that first. As promised I will be using some more of the designer papers. My first card was actually embossed twice ….

The folder is “not” full size so I had to run it through the emboss machine twice, but with the guide line on the folder, it makes it easy to align and get it through straight. It embosses to clean and clear … I love it!! Using the “Hello” folder really makes for a quick card.

I added a strip of the Pansy Petals Designer paper and added a bow using the White Seam Binding Ribbon … then I had to add a little pop of color to all the white, so I used the Fresh Flower Flourishes that coordinate with the Fresh Freesia designer paper and card base.

Simple … yes, but oh so cute! Well … I couldn’t stop there because there are 2 embossing folders in the package!! So I decided to see how it would look on colored cardstock, and what better color to use than the beautiful Misty Moonlight.

I teamed my Misty Moonlight with the Hand-Penned Designer Series paper and decided to emboss this “landscape” position verses the “portrait” that we used above ….

The folders create such a deep textured embossed imagery that there is no need for greetings … in fact, the embossing says it all, and in many different languages. I also added the same ribbon but used the Elegant Faceted Gems for a little bling, bling!

I thought you would like to see how the same supplies look with the two different layouts …

So … What do you think? Nice right!? These little beauties are only $8.00 which makes them a great stocking stuffer … yes, I know Christmas is a few months off, but I also know that many of you are looking for ideas for your crafters.

Thank you for stopping by, have yourself a wonderful day.
