Easy Embossing Folder Cards!

Well, winter is definitely underway at our house! The kids have been sick (that always seems to happen at this time), but are now feeling better; the weather is very wintry out; and the Christmas tree is up!  When I lived in Nova Scotia I never put my tree up early. Mostly because I always had a real tree.  Here in Alberta it is so much more expensive for a real tree - being that there are not as many forests as on the East Coast, so we have our lovely fake tree!

I thought I'd share these quick and easy embossed cards with you today. I have had these Christmas embossing folders for a while now, but for some reason couldn't find the right way to use them. I got out my Distress Inks and sponges and was really surprised at how easy these came together!

For the first one I used some small finger sponge daubers to give me a little more control and just lightly sponged on the ink. I added a few yellow Stickles to the flower centers and it was done!

Inside I heat embossed a piece of vellum with my Believe sentiment.

For the second I used the larger Tim Holtz sponge applicators and 3 different shades of ink. You could use the small ones again though and shade each group of words individually. I had a Christmas sticker from a few years back and attached it to the front with some pretty gold ribbon. Done!

A quick stamped greeting on the inside, highlighted with white gel pen.

I hope you're enjoying your weekend! I can't believe it's December 1st tomorrow....!
