3D Embossing Folders - This Works


Love the gorgeous dimension that 3D embossing folders give, but I couldn't get good results. No matter how many shims or combinations I used, nothing worked right. 

So when I saw that Spellbinders released a Universal Plate System, I bought it. It is designed to work with both the Spellbinders Platinum 6 die cutting machine (which I have) AND other machines, such as the Big Shot. It's not just for embossing folders - it's for anything you would do with a die cutting machine and it has a long platform, which accommodates the Spellbinders folders (they are 8.5 x 5.5). 

As you can see, it worked like magic. If you want more information on this system, check out theses videos - Yana and Cathy

These cards were made with the Scenic Poinsettias 3D Embossing Folder, the Holiday Blooms dies, and the Christmas Mailbox Greetings Glimmer Hot Foil Plate.  And that gold paper? It's my favorite. It's super shiny but you can't ruin it with fingerprints. It's Brushed Gold cardstock from Spellbinders. 

Disclosure: Spellbinders gifted me the embossing folder and the dies. I paid for everything else. 

MOOD WHEN DONE: delighted

Those are some big beautiful folders! I'm glad you found a way to use them so you could make these gorgeous cards.
