I Made My Own Embossing Frame Folder

If you are like me, you are glad that January is half over.  I think we have all had crazy weather, I'm really tired of temperatures under 20 degrees and I've had enough snow for the Winter!  We are less than a  month away from Valentine's Day so we will be needing ideas for fun things to make for friends and family for that special day.

I absolutely LOVE the new Framed Tulips Embossing folder!  I have spent a bit of time hoping that the new Stampin' Up catalog this Summer will have several other embossing folders to choose from.  The frame-type folder makes creating a fantastic card so much quicker and easier!  Then I thought about the embossed card I made last year with the Heart To Heart punch and decided I could do a frame with the smallest hearts from that punch too.

I punched out a bunch of hearts and lined them up, centered them and stuck them down, 3 in a stack.  When I embossed the Pretty in Pink paper I used the platform, a Standard Cutting Plate, the Silicone pad and another Standard Cutting Plate.  It took a while to adhere all those little hearts but now I have my own Heart to Heart frame embossing folder to use as often as I want to!
The second card uses the stamp set Dreams DuJour.  I embossed the top half only with the Polka Dot Embossing folder and tied the organdy ribbon around it.  I mounted it on a piece of Rose Red cardstock for a quick and easy card.

I'm smelling my bread baking.  I reckon I need to go get it out of the oven before it gets too dark!  I'm having a dinner party tonight so I want that bread to be perfect  :~)
