Let’s be honest. The hardest part about my tutorial today was finding a picture of my husband and myself that wasn’t terrible in some way! Clearly we don’t hand the camera off enough to get photos of the two of us together. Mental note. I really loved the sentiment of this embossing folder. I wanted to incorporate it into a DIY quote frame piece for my home.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY quote frame:
- 2-Opening 5×7 Flat Collage Picture Frame
- Silver Foil Cardstock
- Together Is Our Favorite Embossing Folder
- Embossing Machine
- Jet Black Ink Pad
- Core’dinations Sand It Set
- 3-D Dots Pop-Up Adhesive Foam Strips
- Rubbing Alcohol
- Paper Towel
I also used a fun technique that I will walk you through today.
Did you know that you can make metallic cardstock look like aged, tooled pewter?
Let me show you how!
Trim silver metallic cardstock to 4″x6″, and 5″x7″ pieces.
Insert the 4×6 piece into your embossing folder, facing upwards.
Dampen a paper towel with a little bit of rubbing alcohol.
Using 3 Dimensional adhesive, attach the embossed piece to the 5×7 piece.
Insert a 5×7 photo into one side, and your finished embossed piece into the opposite side.
