Plastic Paper: Embossing Possibilities!

By Gail LindnerCards, Inspiration, Comments are off

Well now you’ve seen the new Bazzill Basics Plastic Embossing Paper, I’m here to show you how I used it to create some fun texture on a couple of cards! You guys know it works perfectly with embossing folders right? Well I gathered a few supplies as you can see in the photo below, and got to creating!

Of course my first creation had to be with the gorgeous Sea Glass color! I had one of the Next Level embossing folders to try from We R Memory Keepers and the depth and texture it creates, especially with the Plastic Paper, is gorgeous! After I ran it through my Evolution, I didn’t need to add too many more details as I wanted the texture to shine!

I added a strip of Gold Foil cardstock to the right hand edge as well as a couple of shorter, banner ended strips underneath a simple sentiment. Here’s a close up photo so you can see the dimension from the embossed Plastic Paper.

For my second card, I chose the fabulous, bright Buttercup Plastic Paper and gathered a few other bright supplies that I thought would make for a fun card. While looking through my embossing folders, I couldn’t go past the cute pineapple design from Pink Paislee to be teamed with that gorgeous yellow!

To mix it up a bit and show you more possibilities, after I embossed the yellow, I trimmed it into a large banner shape and used my sewing machine to add a couple of lines of stitches across the top to attach it.

I must admit, I tried a few combinations of things before settling on the final design for the sentiment. I used some gold letter stickers for the word ‘you’ and added a couple of bright word stickers (by Heidi Swapp) to add my other words.

A die cut arrow from the Gold Foil cardstock, a few sequins scattered and a strip of black and white paper over on the right completed the card and I love it! In fact, I already know who I’m going to give this one too!
