Everything Old is New Again.
When I say embossing folder, what crosses your mind. So three years ago, right? Or maybe not. Everything old becomes new again is definitely true in the arts and crafts world. Someone makes a minor change to a tool or discovers a new technique with an old, semi-forgotten supply and voila! it’s hot again. If the crafting community comes out with more designs like the Stampin’ Up Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder by Sizzix, mark my words, embossing folders will be hot again.
What’s different about this particular folder you ask? Let’s start with an entirely awesome, elegant and versatile design. The cable knit pattern screams both cozy and winter while not being strictly a holiday design. Then add the crazy deep texture that gives you the impression of a soft, knit sweater at a glance and you’ll be thinking of dozens of ways to use this ‘throwback’ tool.
Check out my video below to see it in action.
*Note: While writing this post I also stumbled across the Sizzix 3-D Textured Impressions embossing folder in Woven, which I think I must have since it’s another really classic, classy and yup, versatile, design. Keep ’em coming Sizzix!
