Some times cards are so easy to make...other times they are a struggle!
This card with the Country Floral 3 D Embossing Folder was a breeze! The embossing folder does all the "heavy lifting" for this card! A little twine and a sentiment and you are done! I think it gets a "big bang for its buck," just saying..... I do have a "Cutting Trick" to keep the embossed section square and true to size! Read it in the instructions below!
Isn't that a beautiful card! Pretty Peacock is such a rich color! I liked it so much that I made it in all of the 2019-2021 In Colors.
You could make this style of card with any embossing folder in your collection. I do think the 3D style is stunning because of the deep impressions.
In case you'd like to make this card, here are the details:
Card base of 8.5 inches x 5.5 inches and score at 4.25
In same color cut a 5.25 x 4 inch piece of card stock and emboss
After embossing cut the embossed piece down to 4.75 x 3.5 inches.
(I emboss first and then cut because the deep embossing changes the size of the paper.)
Cut a whisper white mat at 4 7/8 x 3 5/8 inches.
Attach the embossed piece to the whisper white mat. Wrap with baker's twine or ribbon
and then adhere to the card base.
Choose a sentiment and stamp. Cut out with the second smallest stitched oval. Adhere

I hope you'll try making a card that showcases an embossing folder! I think you'll be pleased.
Happy card making!
