This 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder is designed by Tim Holtz for Sizzix and has a Quilted pattern. This unique embossing folder both embosses and debosses. This embossing folder is compatible with leading die cutting and embossing machines (sold separately). This folder is 6.25" x 4.25" and is perfect for standard size cards. This folder can be used with metal, heavy cardstock, metallic foil, watercolor paper, and mixed media paper. Note: You may need to use only one cutting pad with your machine because of the thickness of this folder, for optimum results. It is also recommended that you lightly mist both sides of your paper and run the sandwich through your machine three times.
I love all the 3D texture fades , but not this one. Tried every possible sandwich, and about 6 different papers, metallics etc. Just not enough embossing to make it look good at all, and certainly not 3D .
There is something wrong with the height of the stitch in the folder itself, and the negative side, so it doesn't bite in enough.
I am quite unhappy with it and hope to not have this problem again. with any of the other newer ones.
I was pleased to get this embossing folder...until I used it. It never worked right. The top half would emboss sort of OK, but the bottom half would not. I tried many shims, thicknesses of card stock, everything I could think of but it still does not leave a good all over impression. I have no problems with every other embossing folders I own.
I love ALL the Embossing Folders from Sizzix. This one I was STOKED to get. However it doesnt give the "quilted" impression. Ive tried everything (different sandwiches) and nothing. Just a very light stitching. Major bummer.
Very disappointed. I love this folder when I saw the demo on you tube. However, the one I bought, did not emboss the way it is expected. Not 3D enough like my other Sizzix embossing folders ( using same machine and same paper )
I thought mine is defective, but I guess not, since lots of crafters have the same issue.
When you use this folder, it will look just like it's quilted. Great look. Be sure to use Tim's suggestions. Spray both sides of paper first. Find the appropriate sandwich for you cutting machine and then run through at least 3 times. This worked for me
