Tips & Hints for How to Use the Floral Affection textured impressions embossing folder

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: 10-11-16 Affection folder

Here's a recent card we made in class using the Floral Affection folder: 10-11-16 Affection Folder card

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 10-11-16 Equipment

Cut a piece of thick Whisper White cardstock 2 1/2 X 4 1/4: 10-11-16 Cardstock in folder

Center this in the Floral Affection Folder....notice the black arrow I've markered on the folder? 10-11-16 Cardstock in 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. 10-11-16 Rolling through the Big Shot

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. 10-11-16 Completed

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.
