I recently participated in a card swap at Picture This in which we had to use embossing folders.
I started out by spritzing my cardstock with water and adding the color burst powders.
Then spritzing with more water until I got the look I wanted.
I let the pieces dry overnight. Then I ran them through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder by Taylored Expressions.
I layered the cards with other embossed elements and finished off my card.
Here are my 10 finished cards for the swap.
