3D embossing folders - what is the fuss about? :-)

Happy New Year Everyone! Here's to hoping for a great 2022!

Lots of companies have recently been releasing 3D embossing folders, and I was wondering what the fuss was about. Most of us would have had embossing folders in our stashes for a while now, and - if you're like me - you probably don't use them too often nowadays, do you? I used to be obsessed with the embossed texture, but I do tend to forget about my folders nowadays... Therefore, I was not hugely interested in the new hype... Until I tried one out, of of curiosity, that is!

I must tell you, these 3D folders are a whole new experience! The dimension is amazing, and they somehow seem to be much kinder on the paper also (I used to get lots of cracks in the past, but maybe that was just lack of experience and using different, paper, not sure?), which is great!

Now, don't get me wrong, I will definitely not be using these on every single card, but when I do want some additional interest to the background, I will be remembering about my 3D folders for sure! These backgrounds are also fantastic for CAS designs, as the designs are so interesting that just a small sentiment, a bit of bling, or a small image will totally be enough! 

Here's one of my most recent cards, with an Altenew folder & image. The white Neenah cardstock was covered with some gilding polish (another item in my stash that I love, and that I constantly forget about, but you can read more about it here), and then embossed - and it took it beautifully! I am so in love! 

Have you used any of the new embossing folders yourself? Share your thoughts! :o)

Stay safe and crafty,
