Video: New Embossing Folders

Hi All!   I LOVE embossing folders and with the new SU catty, we have 5 new designs!  (ok, one has 2 in the package so technically 4, but I’m counting them as 2 designs)  They can be overlooked in the catalog so I’m spotlighting them here as well as a video today.

Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folders  #127023  $8.95. 

These are about 2″ tall and are just for edges and borders.

Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127750  $7.95.  

Perfect for masculine cards, too!

Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  #127749  $7.95  

Right on trend with fashion!

Fancy Fan Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #127751  $7.95

Elegant without being too frilly!

I noticed right away that the new folders are longer than last year’s models.  These are around 6-1/2″ long and won’t fit horizontally in the Big Shot.  I recently found out that it is b/c the UK stampers have longer cards than we do.   I think their standard is 6″ so they are really excited!

With the longer length of folder, we need to adjust and tweak the way it runs through our machines.  Vertical designs are no problem and proceed as usual.  Horizontal card folds will require the adjustment.

7/15/12 Update:  I ended up cutting a 1/4 inch off of my folders so I can use them both directions:) You certainly don’t have to but I like options.

Here is a quick video:

Thanks for tuning in!

    Maybe your right…maybe they will be making a bigger machine to compete with the Spellbinders machine.

  2. I think they have made them longer for us here in Australia. Our cards are a different size then yours and the old folders are not long enough to do the entire card front. I have been wanting this for ever.

  3. I’m excited for you guys! That would be a bit frustrating all these years to have short ones. What size in inches is your standard card size?

    My first thought was the same as Michelle’s. Our standard card size here in Australia, in inches is approximately 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″. I’m SOOO excited to be getting folders that will actually cover the whole front! YAY!

  5. I’m excited for you guys! I just wish they could have made them 6″ to accommodate both. I’ve been cutting mine off 1/2″ 🙂

    Linda, you mentioned cutting about 1/4 inch off your folder, did you use the tabletop cutter? I would like to cut mine, but I am afraid of wrecking the embossing folder!

  8. It is a bit scary, Julie! I used my tabletop (guillotine) cutter and did one side at a time. I drew a line on it with a ruler so I knew how much to cut off. then I used scissors to round the corners so they weren’t sharp. It’s not as pretty but I like using it both ways in my Big Shot 🙂
