One folder three ways

I have been having a play with my embossing folders. This first card was using  the tulip embossing folder with white pearl card then I stamped the verse in the centre using a See Dee stamp, I then embossed a second sheet and cut out some of the flowers and added them with sticky pads to give some depth. Not happy to leave it at that I stitched little pearl flowers and beads on the flowers. This card looks much prettier in real life.
 This second card I used the same folder but used a brilliance pearl ink pad and a brayer to ink up one side of the embossing folder, I added a stamped greeting and again stitched little pearls in the centre.
 This last card I inked up the opposite side of the embossing folder and used the debossed side so the flowers are edged in the lilac, again I added a greeting and stitched pearls on them.
I love this folder, I think it will be getting plenty of use, it's avaliable free delivery world wide here
