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.
I just love these embossing folders, they are great for man themed/grunge/steampunk themed projects. The details are great and very realistic and are awesome to add metal like details to your projects!
My son is a mechanical geared guy. I am so excited to have these in my stash for cards, scrapbook pages and so mych more for my guys. These have so many possibilities I am excited to start playing!
The products are great, couldn't wait to get them! I got them much sooner then usual.
this a really great design for masculine cards. Have used it several times already
Both embossing folders gave clear, crisp images. Will use them a lot in the future.
