Emboss a 3 x 4 1/4 piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock with the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. TIP: Run the embossing folder forward and backward through the Big Shot to maximize the embossing effect in each direction.

  1. This is beautiful Mary. Do I also see some green along with the Blackberry Bliss added with a dauber?

    • Thanks, Susan. It’s the wildest thing . . . I used a dauber and added Blackberry Bliss ink on Blackberry Bliss card stock. It created this bronzed/burnished effect. No green or brown ink was used.

  2. Terri Mitchell

    This card is absolutely beautiful. This embossing folder should not be covered in the background.

  3. I’ve been following you since 2014, and one of the things I especially enjoyed were your color combos, with the tulips and the PPA color challenges. I haven’t noticed those for a while, and would like to see some suggestions for the newer SU colors. Are the samples available somewhere?
