How to Use the Stampin'Up! new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

If you have devoured the Stampin'Up! Holiday Mini catalog then you've seen the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, right? Dynamic---what does that mean? Well, this little beauty makes an impression (dry embossing) in the cardstock that is about twice as deep as the regular textured impressions embossing folders. It gives a vey distinct and intense impression. Because of it's thickness, you need to know how to use it so that you don't damage your folder or your Big Shot!

Here's the folder we are talking about  and a piece of cardstock we'll talk about below: 10-14-16 Cable Knit Folder and cardstock

Here's a card we created  using this folder--gorgeous, right? 10-14-16 Cable Knit folder Card

I'm going to give you the step by step process to use with this folder.  I cut a piece of Real Red cardstock 4 1/8 X 5 3/8:

Center this cardstock in the folder--note which direction you want the cable to run--you can see how I placed the cardstock to get the cable to run vertically. Since this is a 6 X 6 folder, you can have the cable running in either direction for your own  card design--that's a terrific advantage for the 6 X 6 folders. 10-14-16 cardstock in folder

Now, here's how your sandwich is made for this folder--Big Shot, Big Shot Platform,  folder with cardstock inside, one standard cutting pad on top. Note: there is NOT a standard cutting pad underneath the folder....this would add too much thickness and possibly damage your machine and/or your folder. Be sure to place the folder with the open edges out and the folder spine going into the machine first. 10-14-16 One cutting pad on top 10-14-16 Cranking through big shot

Here's your final product---gorgeous! 10-14-16 embossed cardstock

It's a very simple process but you want to remember the directions above--use only one standard cutting pad on top and make sure the folder spine goes through the Big Shot first.
