Spellbinders Embossing Folder of the Month | Garden Path

Hello, crafty friends!
I have a springtime card to share today using the Embossing Folder of the Month by Spellbinders - Garden Path.

The Embossing Folder adds texture and dimension to any project. The embossing folder is a whopping 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″and can be used to make slimline, 5″ x 7″, and a variety of sized projects. It’s a beautiful design and perfect for creating spring cards of all sizes.

I used the Garden Path Embossing Folder along with the Be Bold Blooms Etched Dies and the Nestabilities Candlewick Rectangles Etched Dies to create my card. 

To create my card, I first die-cut Portbello Cardstock using the Layer 2 Die from the Precision Layering A2 B Etched Dies. Next, I embossed the panel using the Garden Path Embossing Folder in my Platinum 6 Die Cutting Machine. Then, I trimmed a piece of Snowdrift Cardstock to size before embossing it with the Garden Path Folder to create a pretty, textured, embossed pattern. Once that was done, I die-cut Waterfall Cardstock and White Fun Foam using the Rectangle 2 Die from the Nestabilities Candlewick Rectangles Etched Dies to create a frame for my embossed piece. I layered the pieces together, one on top of the other, using Craft Glue.

Next, to embellish my card, I die-cut Pink SandFern, Waterfall, and Snowdrift Cardstock using the various flower and foliage dies in the Be Bold Blooms Etched Dies. I lightly blended Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink over some of the smaller flowers using a sponge dauber to add a hint of colour. Then, I assembled the flowers, arranged them on my card, and adhered them down with both Craft Glue and foam squares

Next, I used Gold Hot Foil to foil Snowdrift Cardstock using one of the sentiments from the Be Bold Glimmer Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set and cut it out using the coordinating die. I adhered the piece onto my panel using foam squares for a raised effect. Then, to complete, I stamped an accompanying sentiment from the I'm Here for You Sentiments Clear Stamp & Die Set on to a strip of Snowdrift Cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped it on to my panel using foam adhesive. Next, to add some visual interest to the design, I stamped a gingham border on a piece of Barely Peach Cardstock using Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink Pad and adhered the piece to my panel using Craft Glue. To finish, I adhered my card panel to a  top-folding A2-sized blue card base made out of  Waterfall Cardstock. I finished the card with some Glacier Jewels to embellish my panel.
