Today a new product review was posted on Splitcoaststampers. It is for Spellbinders new M-Bossabilities embossing folders. Needless to say I love them (what Spellbinders product do I not love?). To show off the folders, I created a quick and easy tutorial on how to create a Faux Letterpress look.

The background was created with the new Elegance M-Bossibilities folder. It was inked with Cantaloupe Memento Ink andNeenah Solar White cardstock was embossed with the folder. It was cut down to a 2 15/16″ square, which was then stitched to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest of the Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities dies. The card base was cut out of the same cardstock with the same die and the card front was adhered on top.

An image from JustRite Stampers Botanical Butterflies was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Parisian Accent die. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Butterfly: Y17, YR15, YR18    Leaves: G40, G43, G46) and sponged with Old Paper Distress ink. The image layer was adhered to the lower right of the card base with dimensionals.

A sentiment from Fleur De Lis Label 20 stamp set was stamped in black on white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Nested Lacey Pennants die. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card. I made this card into a birthday card I can enter it into JustRite Stampers current Birthday Bash Challenge.  You still have an entire week to enter the challenge for a chance to win JustRite stampers stamp sets.
