Texture using embossing folders

I love adding texture to my cards. One way of doing this is by using embossing folders or in other times adding dimensions.

With embossing folders, you can get a deep impression of a design.

I have a limited folder in my stash but they are very handy in making general textured background.

This time I’m sharing a very pretty embossing folder called Ana Griffin’s Aviary embossing folder/border set, this I got from Pretty Paper Studio.

You can see more details of how I did the three cards in the Pretty Paper Studio blog.
