CYHTP Embossing Folder Challenge


The Can You Handle the Pressure Embossing Folder Challenge is anything goes with an optional twist.  Our challenge twist is Easter.

For my card I used the following:
Arches Cold Press Watercolor Paper
Stampin Up Petal Pink Cardstock
Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Matelasse Embossing Folder
Stampin Up Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder
Image from Unity The Best You Can set
Unity Stitched Rectangle Die
Penny Black Easter Blessings Die
Gems from stash

image colored using Local King Watercolor Markers direct to image then spritzed with water 
before stamping onto the watercolor paper panel

The embossed background was first embossed using the Pretty Flowers folder and again embossed using the Matelasse folder

We hope you'll share your cards/projects with us at

Remember the Easter twist is optional!

  3. Gorgeous card, so soft and pretty!!

  4. Love that watercolor technique, you chose beautiful colors for the flowers and a very pretty sentiment to go with them!

  5. How pretty this is. You have used one of my favorite embossing folders. I finally snagged it on ebay, but boy are they hard to come by. Love what you have done with that watercolored image, just gorgeous.
