Spellbinder’s 3D Emboss & Cut Folders featuring Floral For You l VIDEO l BONUS TAGS

Hello friends! Spellbinders’ emboss and cut folders in the Sealed 3D Botanical Collection are fabulous! Today’s project features Floral For You 3D Emboss & Cut Folder. This set creates three sweet floral arch shaped images suitable for different card sizes and one of them is a sweet tag. The dies nest around the images in the folder. Just place your card stock in the folder and run it through the die cutting machine … an embossed and cut image in one fell swoop! So awesome!

  • Bristol Smooth Card Stock was used to  ‘emboss & cut’ the three images in Floral For You. I found it easiest to do one image at a time otherwise it was difficult to roll the embossing folder through my die cutter.

  • The images were painted with pigment powders. I worked with a combination of Nuvo Shimmer Powders (Solar Flare, Green Parade, Falling Leaves) and Lindy’s Magicals (Crupet Crumbs, Pass the Jam, Jane, Pinkies Up Pink).

  • The panels were spattered with white gouache that was slightly watered down using a fan brush.

  • To create the card base, the large die from Arch Labels & Tag was used to cut white card stock that was folded in half. The die was positioned so the top the arch was overhanging the crease before die cutting.

  • Using the same die, white card stock was cut and embossed with Meandering Floral Embossing Folder. The embossed panel was adhered to the card base.

  • The dies that accompany the Floral For You folder can be used on their own. I cut white sheet

  • The card images were mounted on the foam die cuts and adhered to the card bases.

  • The cards were finished off with sentiments from Everyday Sentiments. The sentiments were cut from both white card stock and foam. The sentiments were stacked and adhered to the card fronts.

  • The embossed tag was adhered to the white card stock one for a smooth writing surface and finished off with an embroidery floss tie.


The first project is more time consuming but simply embossing ink blended panels makes for a quick and easy cards or tags. For this set of tags, small panels of Bristol Smooth Card Stock were ink blended with Distress Oxide Inks. I used three tones for each one. Because the panels for the tags is small, the blending is fast! The panels, one at a time, are lined up to the tag in the Floral For You 3D Emboss & Cut Folder and run through the die cutter. I rubbed the high points with a white pigment ink pad and adhered them to white tags that were not embossed. The tags were finished off with ties. Easy!
