Free Embossing Folders from Simply Cards & Papercraft 122

I love the effect of gilding wax on dry-embossed images, but I suffer from peripheral neuropathy which makes it painful for me to rub the harder waxes onto the card. So I was delighted when I recently discovered the Pinflair Buff-it colours. You can use them in just the same way as gilding waxes, but they are really soft. Being water-based, you can also mix the colours and you'll probably get a technique Tueday post from me about that some day, but today I am going to show you a card I made using the free embossing folders from Simply Cards & Papercraft issue 122.

"Have a Lovely Day"

Now I really liked this card, but everyone I've shown it to thinks it's too dark, so I made a more colourful version. :-)

"Hope Your Day is Fabulous"

I layered up the embossing with stamped images and diecuts and sponged and sprayed inks for lots of colour. Hope your day is fabulous too! Maddy x
