October 11, 2016
If you are like me, when you use the smaller Stampin'Up! textured impressions embossing folders, you tend to get some tiny crinkles in your cardstock. Today I'm going to give you some tips & hints and show you how I minimize those crinkles.
This is the new Floral Affection folder we'll be using today:
Here's a recent card we made in class using the Floral Affection folder:
Pretty, right? It's not perfect but we've minimized the little crinkles so they are hardly noticeable.
Now let's get on with the tips and tricks--here's the equipment you'll need...the Big Shot, the Big Shot Platform and 2 standard cutting pads
Cut a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock 2 1/2 X 4 1/4:
Center this in the Floral Affection Folder....notice the black arrow I've markered on the folder?
Arrange your sandwich as follows--Big Shot, Big Shot Platform, standard cutting pad, folder with cardstock enclosed with the arrowed edge pointed toward the Big Shot roller, and the second standard cutting pad.
Hint: ROLL VERY SLOWLY--so crank your sandwich through the Big Shot--go slowly
Here's the final product---note, it is not perfect but we have significantly minimized the crinkles that normally occur when we use the standard Whisper White cardstock and crank through at our normal rate.
Give it a try and let me know if you have found any other terrific tips or tricks that will help us use our folders better.
