Tami Mayberry here today. It’s no secret that I love making Clean & Simple cards. It’s also no secret that I love using Sizzix products for those cards. One of may favorite things to use on my cards is embossing folders. They are a great way to add texture and interest while remaining clean and simple. Today I am going to show you three examples using the Be Merry embossing folder from Brenda Walton.
First up a simple white panel with a few gems added for sparkle and interest. First, I embossed a piece of smooth white cardstock. The panel was then attached with adhesive foam squares for extra interest. Finally I added some matching self-adhesive gems.
Want a little more color? Try a darker panel with some bright and festive gem colors. The placement is simple using the embossed snowflakes as a guide.
Maybe you’re not a fan of white. This design works great with any color combination. Here are used two shades of blue. Instead of gems I decided to use pearls. For a more distressed look you could even sand the embossed image.
Be sure to check out all of the embossing folders from Sizzix, you’re sure to find one that will make a Clean and Simple card perfect for any occasion!
