DIY Frame Embossing Templates {video!}

Happy Friday friends! Boy, have I got a fun project for you to try this weekend! Making Your own embossing frames! These are cardboard frames you can cut and use with your embossing folders so you only emboss a section of your card and leave the rest flat for stamping like I did on this card:

DCF 1.0

Check out this video to see how it is done!

Here are some more examples:

I’m going to keep it short and sweet today, I made up a couple more batches of earrings yesterday and I need to package them up then load up the van with my craft fair stuff. I am feeling the panic I always do before a show “Did I make enough stuff? Will anyone buy it?!?”  But in the end I know I will be fine, even if I sell nothing I’m only out the $15 for the table and I will have lots of new inventory for next time. Wish me luck! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Hi Lindsay. I don’t have the Big Shot, just the Sizzix Textured Boutique for embossing. Any suggestions on how to emboss the “frame” without ruining my boutique? By the way, you are so much fun and enthusiastic about your projects. You are my inspiration.


  2. Hope you do really well with your craft sale and have to start over again for the next one – I’d be buying stuff from you! All the best!!


  3. Can’t wait to hear how the show goes. Best of luck. I’d love to be there shopping and drooling over all your wares.


    1. Hi Kendra! I have a really fun, pretty and inexpensive mother’s day card to make here using a seed packet for decoration, you could include a gift certificate for a garden shop too if you wish: and more of these here:
      Here is another pretty card:
      Also if you want to make a mother’s day gift here is what I made for my mother this year: have fun!
