WOW!  The Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder Is “Impressive!”

Create this Thank You So Much Card with the Everyday Details Dies and Softly Sophisticated FREE Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty (4)

Honestly, the Softly Sophisticated 3D Embossing Folder was barely on my radar until I gave it a try on today’s Thank You card.  WOW!  The defined, chic texture was so “impressive” that I couldn’t wait to add it to my envelope flap for stunning coordination.

Enhance an Envelope with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder FREE Bundle by Stampin' Up! Card by Mary Fish, Stampin Pretty

2 MINUTE TECHNIQUE TIP.  I’m such a fan of dressing up envelope flaps and used the same embossing folder (Softly Sophisticated) for the card and envelope flap.  I turned the embossing folder to “landscape” so that it would span the width of the envelope flap.  This is how it should look before running it through the Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  For a really clean look, the crease of the envelope flap should go just a tad inside the embossing folder and line up with where the embossing starts.

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine (Standard or Mini) to crop with the Flirty Flamingo layer with the 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 rectangle Everyday Detail die and the sentiment with the 2 3/4 x 1 1/4 rectangle Everyday Detail die. TIP: Use Post-It© Tape to keep the die in place over the sentiment when running it through the machine.

Adhere the Flirty Flamingo die-cut to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Adhere the boughs to the flirty flamingo piece with Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere the sentiment as shown with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

POP OF PERSONALITY!  Embellish with one black Classic Matte Dot as shown.

PERFECT POLISH! Line the Softly Sophisticated folder up with the flap crease of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, slightly inside the folder where the pattern begins and zip thru the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
