Great ideas, love them all!

This is another basic idea but with a tip I came up with last nite. Place cardstock with a different colored core in an embossing folder and run it thru you machine then sand to bring out the middle color.

Last nite I was doing this with some metallic cs. Problem is the sanded areas are no longer shiny and metalic looking like the bg when you do this. To make the sanded areas shiny again like the metalic background I rubbed the cs with some Micro-Glaze.

I'll get a pic later today to show you what I mean.

Maybe it's too early in the am, LOL. Me thinks another cup of coffee is needed lylacfey. I know this because we added comment to this thread at the same time.

Thanks for including the sample, Pat. They turned out really great.

Great resource. I was wondering how to make my own embossing folder, and it looks like she explains how to do it.

It just occurred to me that this thread could get huge and unmanageable and become confusing, so let's keep this thread to EMBOSSING FOLDERS and start another thread for die-cuts. It is too bad that I can't rename this file, but I'll note that it is intended for embossing folders in the first post. If you posted a cutting tip, please re-post it in the new thread.

I need for you all to share your tips and techniques because dye cuts are not my expertise and that thread will be empty if I am the only one to post!!!!

Here is the link for the Die-Cuts thread:

Sorry the picture is not better but you know how hard it is to shoot on a grey cloudy day and how hard it is to shoot metallic surfaces, ugh I'm dealing with both today.

hopefully you can still tell how much more shiny and brighter the right side of this piece is:

btw the CS is called "rusted Metallic" from Paper Cuts.
