Embossed Eelements: Shamrocks

Hello, hello, DeNami friends! It's Emily here today with the February edition of my new monthly Embossed Elements feature here on the DeNami blog. Today I'm sharing with you two different projects featuring the very cool St. Patrick Embossing Folder from the DeNami store. My first project takes the obvious route, casting the St. Patrick embossing folder as the star of a St. Patrick's Day card:

For this project, I trimmed three identically sized panels of cardstock (1.75" x 4") in Leaf Green, White, and Desert Orange, then carefully lined them up side-by-side in the St. Patrick embossing folder before running the whole shebang through my diecutting machine. I adhered the panels to a white cardstock card base to form a beautifully textured version of the Irish flag.

Next I stamped a Stitched Rectangle in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on white cardstock and filled this frame with Happy St. Patrick's Day (don't you just LOVE how a shamrock is used as the apostrophe in this sentiment? I do!) in Fresh Green Versacolor ink. After trimming out the framed sentiment, I simply popped it up on foam tape, and my simple flag-waving card was complete!

My second card goes to show that this St. Patrick embossing folder isn't just for March 17! Here I've used it to create a clean and simple Good Luck card.

I used the St. Patrick embossing folder to deboss a panel of patterned paper for a bit of subtly lucky texture and then adhered it, along with a length of narrow celery green grosgrain ribbon, to a white card base. I stamped the brand-new Good Luck sentiment in Olympia Green Versafine ink on white cardstock before punching it out with a word label punch. I popped up the sentiment with foam tape and affixed a pair of green rhinestones. Finally, I stamped a Curly Shamrock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on white cardstock, colored it with my Copic markers, trimmed it out, and adhered it with some foam tape. Done!

I hope that this installment of Embossed Elements has given you some useful ideas for using embossing in your papercrafting!
