Tattered Lace - Victorian Swirl Embossing Folder and other dies.

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

How is your week going? We are still in Colchester. Today we went into Tiptree to visit the jam factory there my Facebook friends will know that we found the coffee shop. There was also a museum and a shop we even bought some presents for people. We finished the day looking round Colchester itself.

A few weeks back I was sent the Victorian Swirl Embossing folder,  the Flower Vase and the Fancy Card label Victorian Swirl die set to make samples for Tattered Lace for shows that will be screened today on Create and Craft TV.

This is all the samples I sent in. I rather liked the embossing folder so I made quite a few samples. Altogether I sent in five cards, two tags, a book mark and a gift bag. 

I think the Victorian Swirl embossing folder is a very elegant folder and it lends itself to being cut up to make different designs. I cut an A4 sheet of card at 16 cm length ways and this fitted just right in the embossing folder. I embossed several pieces of card then I cut them into three along the score lines and I mixed and matched the colours. 

The decoration on this gift bag is very simple but I think very stylish. 

 This was the first card I made. I had a commission wedding card that I had been struggling with. The colours for the wedding are the same as this card so once I had sent my samples in I used the embossing folder to make the card I had been putting off. The recipient was thrilled when I gave it to her. 

You can see the detail of the embossing folder in the background of this gate fold card. The dies in the middle are from the Fancy Card Label Victorian Swirl die set. 

A simple tag made with the embossing folder. 

I decided to make a bookmark with some of the leftovers from the embossing folder. 

I got this flower vase die as well. If you look carefully you can see the embossing folder in the background. 

I did like this die set I enjoyed playing around with the different layers. 

With the flower vase die it was so easy to remove the vase I knew I had to make a card with just the flowers. I cut the flowers out of white card and I coloured the flowers with my Promarkers.  I used the centre of the Fancy label die set for the sentiment. 

Here this the whole flower vase on a tag. 

I did enjoy making these samples.
 Today we are off to visit some family in Suffolk. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
