Get More From Cable Knit Dynamic Embossing Folder


Aren't these unique?! I LOVE THE CABLE KNIT DYNAMIC EMBOSSING FOLDER #143537 - $10 from STAMPIN' UP!

These colors are Real Red and Emerald Envy.

Cable Knit $10


To use this DYNAMIC Embossing Folder, SPRITZ your card stock with water before running thru the Big Shot to soften the paper and get DEEPER TEXTURE! Use only the TOP CUTTING PLATE - NOT two cutting plates because this folder is THICK!


Cut the embossed card stock in strips between the cable designs.


Start in the center and attach the cable strips to the front of a base card. I LOVE Tombow Liquid Glue because it bonds well in my humid climate.


Open the card and trim off any excess cable.


 A cheery, COZY Christmas Card!!


Extra strips created this festive frame!

Buy it HERE from Nancy

My next post is ANOTHER idea with the Cable Knit!

Serene Scenery Panel Cards


It's PANEL CARD WEEK! Learn the "fold" HERE. This Serene Scenery Designer Series 6X6" STACK is perfect for instant Panel Cards! Just add sentiment and mail!


This is a different design from the same paper stack. I stepped this one up with Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate overlay and Badges & Banners Bundle for the sentiment. These are good guy cards. I LOVE this Panel Card design - you MUST try it!


Totally Trees Panel Cards

Totally Trees


I'm beginning with this CUTE set: Totally Trees. I have two VERY different creations.


Hey NORTHERN friends, this one is for you! I LOVE the Cable Knit DYNAMIC Embossing Folder #143537 !! Remember to lightly spritz your card stock with water before running it thru the Big Shot so it's flexible! This card says CHILLY AUTUMN, for sure!!


This design is for my SOUTHERN friends and uses the SAME stamp set, card fold and layout, but looks totally different! The photopolymer allowed me to bend the image and create three different angles on the palm trees!

How to fold a Panel Card


I've been making LOTS of these easy Panel Cards and YOU can, too!!

This fold lays completely flat and fits in an A2 envelope.


See how easy it is! Just score at 2" and 3-1/8" from both ends of a 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" base card!! Fold the center outward and cease well.


 All three of these cards are made with the Fresh Fruit Stamp Set #141770 and coordinating Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper #141660!

Fresh Fruit $27


Vary the center layer with any shape or size up to about 3-1/2" square.


You MUST try this showy Panel Card!! ENJOY!!

Totally Trees


It's LABOR DAY in the USA! Goodbye summer - Hello autumn! Totally Trees Stamp Set from the NEW 2016 Holiday Catalog has lots of tree shapes to create amazing Fall & Christmas greetings!!


One of the great assets of Photopolymer stamp images is FLEXIBILITY! The red arrow show the image as it was created. I simply curved the image as I mounted it on the block to create a "HILL."


I also slightly curved the "THANK YOU" to repeat the curve of the Thoughtful Banners sentiment frame. TRY IT!
