Woodland Embossing Folder - Follow Your Dreams Card

Follow Your Dreams Card. Make this simple card using the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up!

A simple project
Today's card is a beautiful forest card that you can add whatever sentiment you like to. I'm going to take you through it step-by-step so that you can create your very own whimsical forest. You need relatively few supplies although you do need a Big Shot Machine and the Woodland Embossing Folder. Scroll down to the tutorial for a complete list of crafting supplies.

Create this beautiful card using the Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up! UK

How to make this card
1. Choose the colours that you want to use. I used Bright colours but sponged them very lightly, so that they almost look pastel. I used Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo.

2. Put your Whisper White Cardstock into the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and spread run through the Big Shot Machine.

3. Sponge lightly over the areas that are not raised - ie. inbetween your trees.

4. Using a Brayer, lightly roll over the raised segment of your cardstock using a Classic Stampin' Pad. I used Basic Black but any contrasting colour works fine.

5. Stamp your sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set, fussy-cut out and put aside.

6. Assemble your card using Snail adhesive, and our fabulous Stampin' Dimensionals to raise the sentiment up.

Foxy Friends Christmas Tree Card

Use the fir tree stamp from Foxy Friends...
Today's project was created using a combination of three stamp sets - Foxy Friends, Hang your Stocking, and Thoughtful Banners. These are three great stamp sets which personally I use a lot.

I used Foxy Friends for the Christmas tree. This photopolymer set has lots of woodland creatures and accents, and there is a co-ordinating punch (Fox Builder Punch) that goes with it. At first glance you'd think that there's little you can do with this set, but it's more versatile than you realise. 

Take a look at the Foxy Friends stamp set by Stampin' Up!

I try to avoid using too many stamp sets on one project but this time around I used the Hang your Stocking stamp set for the mini trees in the background, and the sentiment comes from Thoughtful Banners

 I was really happy with how it turned out and I used this same design to create three more cards in different colours, with different items in the background which I will share with you once I have photographed them.

Learn how to make this Silver Birch tree card using the Woodland Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

Make this gorgeous Silver Birch greetings card using the Woodland Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up!

Learn more about the Woodland Embossing Folder 
Today's project actually features an embossed image, rather than a stamp image. That's right, the Silver Birch trees have actually been produced using the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder by Stampin' Up! and not a stamp set; you can follow the step-by-step instructions below on how to create it.

This embossing folder is extremely versatile, use it to create framed pictures, cards and home decor projects. You can use it for backgrounds as a whole piece, or cut the individual trees out by hand.

How to make this project 
Follow this step-by-step guide

1. Use a Sponge Brayer to apply Bermuda Bay and Basic Black to your Whisper White Cardstock card front.
2. Run the Woodland Embossing Folder through the Big Shot.
3. Brayer the raised side of the embossing folder with the black ink.
4. Fussy cut the trees using Paper Snips.
5. Adhere the trees to your background using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
6. Create a sentiment using the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set, and stamp a red heart in Real Red or Cherry Cobbler ink.
7. Assemble your card, add your sentiment using Stampin' Dimensionals.

You can view all the products I've used to make this project in the Showcase Reel below.
