The grunge-inspired Bricked & Woodgrain Set of Texture Fades Embossing Folders are from the Alterations Collection by Tim Holtz for Sizzix. Each embosses with select areas of the image appearing perfectly distressed and faded. Folders are to be used with the BIGkick, Big Shot, and Texture Boutique machines (each sold separately). This set includes two large A2 folders (5 3/4" x 4 1/2" x 1/8Â”): 'Bricked' and 'Woodgrain'.
This was my first purchase of the Sizzex embossing folders. I was told they would work well in my Cuttlebug, and they do. I have found myself liking the Sizzix designs so much better then the Cuttlebug designs so I am very happy that they are compatable in the Cuttlebug. I love the brick wall and tree bark, they are so cute!

Recently I read an article in one of my paper craft magazines; a woman said she used a wood grain embossing folder on cardstock before she used a die to cut out leaves; and the wood grain embossing gave the leaves a real-life look; so I thought I would try it too.
These texture fades are amazing. Ran Chipboard, Bazzill cardstock, and even homemade paper through the Vagabond with these and the results were amazing. Even my husband was in awe of how deep the texture was on both sides!

These folders emboss really well. I do find the wood grain one "stretches" water colour paper, but does not with regular card stock. They work well together, as well as for different types of projects.
