Crochet Mandala - 3D Textured Impressions Embossing Folder ... by Eileen Hull and Sizzix (no.665915).
This beautiful embossing folder design features crochet lace doilies stitched together in 12 mandala patterns, covering the whole surface of the embossing folder. Another beautiful design that will inspire you to create (whether you just look at or use it in your art).
An Embossing Folder is a tool used in papercraft and mixed media for adding dimension to card, papers, metallic foils, vellum and some textiles. It is made of durable plastic, hinged at the short end (generally referred to as "top"). A 3D or 3-dimensional embossing folder creates a deeper impression with greater details than a regular embossing folder.
To use, simply place your paper, foil or card in between the hinged plastic and run through your favourite embossing and die cutting machine. The substrate will be pressed into shape, giving a raised dimensional effect.
Sizzix 3D (3 dimensional) Embossing Folders offer the deepest and boldest embossing designs with fine lines, intricate details and raised elements.
Design is (approx) 4 1/2" x 6 1/2"

For bolder results, mist a very fine spray of water onto both sides of the paper or card before use and pass the folder through your machine one to three times and let dry. This will help make the design deeper and more permanent. It needs to be thoroughly dry before applying or distressing with ink.
Sizzix 3-D Texture Impressions Embossing Folders are compatible with most die cutting and embossing hand-cranked machines including the BIGkick, Big Shot, Switch Plus and Vagabond machines using a single Cutting Pad and the machine's included Platform.
