Achieve amazing effects with the Gemini 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils

Crafter's Companion – 29/04/19

Creating papercraft projects with enviable depth and dimension has never been easier than with the Gemini 3D Embossing Folders and Stencils. They promise to take your crafting to a whole new level, so take a look through this inspiration post for a few ideas on the types of effects you can create!

Have a go at creating gorgeous home decor by matting and layering your embossed cardstock on to a wooden panel. This sample uses the Fluttering By folder and stencil.

These folders have been specifically designed to give you an incredible 3D embossed effect with ease. All you need is a Gemini or another leading die-cutting machine and some of your favourite cardstock. Place the card inside your chosen folder, sandwich the folder between two cutting plates and roll the whole thing through your die-cutting machine! This results in an incredible, embossed 3D design for your papercraft projects.

To make the centrepiece images of these embossing folders pop even more, you can use the added stencils to ink over the top. This means that you can add even more depth to the designs with no worry of going outside the lines or add extra details into the embossed areas.

The texture created by these folders is not only amazing to look at, but it also feels fabulous to the touch, so the 3D effect really brings the whole piece to life!

If you want to go that step further, try pairing these folders and stencils up with the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter Inks for a jaw-dropping effect.

Play with inks in various colours to create even more depth. This sample uses the Contemporary Hearts folder and stencil.

Other designs include Butterfly Effect, Chrysanthemum, Poppy Seed Heads and Rose Hip, so there is bound to be something to suit your tastes and projects!
