Zoom Class using EB Folders Techniques

This month Loll's  Zoom Class used Embossing Folders Techniques.  Zoom Classes are a fun way to connect with Crafty friends and still stay safe and creative:-)  

I made several backgrounds,  but have only had time to finish one background into a card.
I will have my other backgrounds though for future projects:-)

Be sure and check out my crafty friends who are playing along.

& Nancy (me)

My Alcohol Ink on Foil Dry Embossed Birthday Card!

 This is such a fun and easy technique using one of my saved alcohol inks on foil 
in my stash.
It has been a year or two since I dry embossed on foil using an EB Folder.  
It makes such a gorgeous background.

I attached to a die cut stitched circle and added a stitched frame.
Then die cut the balloon with my Never Before Used CUTplorations 
"Shaker Balloons #3" Die.
Then blended balloon with Distress Oxide Inks.

Next I dry embossed the balloon with the same SU Retired zigzag EB folder that
I used on the foil.

Stamped and fussy cut the number 3 and attached with Correct Glue.
Stamped SU sentiment using MISTI and tied on twine and popped up
balloon with SU mini dimensions

Popped up card front using white craft foam on Whisper White 100# Card Base
and Done!

My card went to our 3 year old Great Grandson:-)

Thank you Lolly for such a fun technique.
Be sure and check out all the girls awesome samples.  
Love and Hugs...


  1. Oh what a fun card for a 3 year old Nancy! love the bright red on balloon and circle - the embossed AI panel adds great shine to your design! xx

    1. It was so shiny that I couldn't get a good photo of the shine. Gorgeous IRL:-)

  2. I didn't make as many cards as what I have backgrounds for either Nancy, but I love having the backgrounds in my stash for later. Your foil background is so pretty though and that is one technique that I still have to try! And how perfect with the colorful balloon for your great grandson! I'm looking forward to ZOOMing again and learning new techniques! Hugs my friend!! :0)

  3. Oh I have so many EB folders, Nancy - even this one, I think! But I've never embossed foil... it's fabulous, Nancy!
    you and your pals may want to send your cards to the Squash It gang!
