Which embossing folder should I use?


For best results, use the 3D Embossing Folder Plate with all of Stampin’ Up!’s 3D Embossing Folders RELEASED AFTER JUNE 4, 2019.  View the PDF Flyer here. 

Dynamic Embossing Folders (Purchased before June 4, 2019) will use the following sandwich:

  • Platform Base (Bottom) / Dynamic Embossing Folder (Middle)/ Standard Cutting Pad (Top)

Newly Released 3D Embossing Folders (Purchased after June 3, 2019) will use the following sandwich:  

  • Platform Base (Bottom) / 3D Embossing Folder (Middle) / 3D Embossing Folder Plate (Top)   **or**
  • Platform Base (Bottom) /3D Embossing Folder (Middle) / Standard Cutting Plate & Several Shims (cardstock, etc)

The new plate makes up the difference in measurement between our old-style Dynamic Folders and our new-style 3D Folders in 21 mm gap machines (similar to the machine we used to offer). The 3D Embossing Folder Plate replaces the Standard Cutting Pads in your 3D embossing folder sandwich for continued high-quality emboss results.


CARRYOVER 3D Embossing Folders: All carryover 3D embossing folders from our new manufacturer will not be in stock beginning with the June 4th catalog launch but I will let you know when they are available to order.  They anticipate stock arriving in 1 to 2 weeks.   The following folders are those that are affected:

  • Basket Weave 3D
  • Corrugated 3D
  • Country Floral 3D
  • Lace 3D
  • Layered Leaves 3D
  • Pinewood Planks 3D
  • Seasonal Wreath 3D
  • Subtle 3D
  • Tin Tile 3D
  • Tufted 3D

I love hearing from you!  Please leave me your questions or comments below.

  3. Carol Carriveau

    Actually I would love them all as well!

  4. Maria Rodriguez

    A bit late but I must say that the Magnolia EF is gorgeous, love the beautiful flowers in the suit and this EF is just perfect as a background.
    Thank you also for the information Mary.

  5. Nancy Iverson

    Thanks so much for this information!

  6. Karen Bongartz

    I would love to see you use the Brick and Mortor 3-D emossing folder. I do not have it yet and would love to see what you create using it.

  7. Theresa Franks

    Mosaic for surr

  8. Beth Ann Halvorson

    Brick and Mortar is my favorite, but I voted for Magnolia because I have a hard time knowing how to use the folders with the big images, and would love to see new ideas for it!

  9. I WANT THEM ALL 😜😜😜😜
    Hugs Frenchie ♥️

  10. I would like to see some ideas using the Mosaic embossing folder. Have not seen any.
    The paper is beautiful.

    I cannot wait to see what your imagination will produce with the preferred embossing plate.
    Also, I saw someone using 80lb and 110lb cardstock. I have 65lb cardstock. Beside the cost of the cardstock, what would be the difference at the end of the project? I do not know if I should by the 80 or 110lb cardstock.

    • The embossing folders look beautiful when used with either 80 and 100 lb card stock. It’s possible the 100 lb might have a little more definition.

    Your polls are always fun. I can’t wait to see which one it is,No matter which one wins I know you will do something fantastic. TFS.

  13. Love the High Seas folder. Although there are other ‘wave’ type folders previously, this one looks very special with the different levels and directions on the waves. I think it would go very well with all the nautical sets that are available now. Thanks for the opportunity!

  14. What happens if I buy a new machine when it comes out and I want to use the old dynamic folders? Will they go through the machine? With all the talk about needing to use shims, I am leary about buying a new machine.

    • Hi Cheryl,
      I can’t say for sure, but hope that Stampin’ Up! recommends a “sandwich” that will properly accommodate the dynamic style folders. I will update with any information that I have as soon as Stampin’ Up! releases it. Stay tuned!

  15. Thank you so very much for all of the information . Mary you always keep all of your customers and followers of your site very well informed. Have a great day. Hugs. Ellen Hinds
