Tip for Using the Basket Weave Embossing Folder

Basket-weave-embossing-folder-tipLast week, on my Facebook Live broadcast, I shared a card with a fun tip with the new Basket Weave Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This embossing folder is included in a beautiful bundle with stamp set seen above, Blossoming Basket.  It is one of the new Sale-A-Bration choices that you can earn for FREE!

In today's video tutorial, we will actually use the embossing folder as a stamp.  This technique is easy and actually gives the impression more dimension.  Use the folder without ink on any color card stock and it is just as rich and beautiful.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • The Basket Weave embossing folder is a Dynamic folder which means it is thicker that other embossing folders from Stampin' Up!
  • Apply ink to the inside of the folder that has the Stampin' Up! brand on the outside.
  • Just lightly tap the ink pad to the inside of the folder on the ONE side.
  • To run these Dynamic folders through your Big Shot, you will need a platform with no extra platform layers, a cutting plate, and your folder with card stock inside.  That's it! No cutting plate on top!

Thanks sooo much... for the tip on the basket weave embossing folder. I have tried to use it and had such a difficult time, I just gave up.
Did not know about using only the bottom cutting plate. Just finished using it and it is a world of difference. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks.

I am expecting my grandson to arrive shortly from school, and we are going to use the folder for his Easter cards for the family and Sunday School.
