Grunge, masculine, and auto-themed cards, embellishments and layouts will benefit from these embossing folders! Designed by Tim Holtz, the set of folders will emboss paper, metallic foil, vellum and cardstock when used only in the BIGkick, Big Shot, Vagabond and Texture Boutique machines (as well as the correct Cutting Pads and Platform, all sold separately). The two folder designs, Diamond Plate (A2 Large) and Riveted Metal (A2 Large), measure 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" x 1/8".
Sure the diamond plate is pretty obviously male. It's industrial, after all. But I know women who buy trucks and diamond plate is a practical thing even when it's chrome. But the riveted plates scream crazy quilt to me -- color in the "squares" and add some pen work stitching and patterns and you've got a quilt instead. Another angle on this texture is neon tie dye paper. Weird but it works because the texture become secondary -- sort of a girlz power thing. Back to the diamond plate again. I used Distress ink pads and did a gray background and tipped the diamonds in rustâ€¦ to die for! Anyway, these are cool textures.
