Friendship Card with Embossing

This Friendship Card with embossing shows the effect even two dimensional embossing with an embossing folder can have on a card. Embossing just the pink parts makes the card pop!

This card has that extra WOW factor, all because it was embossed!  This is a cute card to tell that special friend just how much you mean to them.  It fits in an A2 envelope for mailing.

I did this card in pink and light green which surprisingly enough works.  Patterns would work for this card too.  The embossing is what makes it pop though.

Cutting the card

Cut the card base and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a green gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used a font called Charlisa Octavia and you can get it free at Dafont

All the embellishments are very thin and want to tear.  Be careful when taking them off the mat.

Assembling the Friendship Card with Embossing

This is a very simple card to make.  Before you start putting the card together, run each of the pink parts through an embossing machine.  I personally have the full sized Gemini and I love it!  It doesn’t have a crank so you can do it with no upper body strength, like me.

Do the layers separately.  Then attach all the embellishments.  Look at the pictures if you need to.  Gluing to an embossed piece is a little more difficult and may take more glue.  Wait until each piece is dry before gluing two together.

Depending on your embossing folder,  the writing may have to be filled in by hand.  Do this carefully if needed.

Glue the top square to the first fold only and glue only the left half or your card won’t work properly.

And your Friendship Card with embossing is done!  It fits in an A2 envelope for mailing.

I hope you can see how an embossing folder can add a little extra bling to any card.  And consider a Gemini for doing your embossing
