Love the texture on this folder. I couldn't seem to get the folder to go through the Spellbinders platinum machine, but worked great on my Cuttle Bug.
If any one knows how to get it to go through the spellbinders I would love to know how?. But all and all it is has a deep emboss, I found heavy card stock to work best. Mist the paper first to relax the paper fibers. Thin card stock paper warps to much.
I have used this folder a number of times since receiving it. It gives the perfect "woody" texture. Add some distress inks and voila! Wood! Important to mist your paper first. And you may need to experiment with the sandwich for your particular die machine. So worth the time to get it just right.
It’s a great addition to my embossing folders. Such texture it’s amazing. I watched the video explaining to mist the paper first and it made a big difference. Im trying out all colors of paper and inks to swipe over the raised areas.
This 3d embossing folder is S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. !!! I watched the videos on lightly misting my paper before using and the detail captured is gorgeous, rich and makes crafting just plain old fun again!!! I almost get giddy going back over my embossed paper with dylusions shimmer sprays, gilding paste, embellishment or expanding mousse or whatever I get my hands on to create depth.. Just a blast digging in and seeing where this can take me as I learn how fun it is to get my fingers dirty again!!!
This is the real deal.. super high embossing pattern in paper. i find it works best on heavy card stock. love it and definitely recommend it for your special wood looking projects, especially 3-D projects where you want a super high embossed pattern.
