Birch - Texture Fades Embossing Folder ... by Tim Holtz.
Inspired by the wonderful texture of the wood or timber of a birch tree, this design includes the grain as well as knots, covering the whole area of the embossing folder.
A Texture Fades 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").
To use, simply place your paper or card inbetween the plastic and run through your favourite machine. The paper or card will be pressed into shape, giving a raised dimensional effect.
Design is (approx) 4 1/8" x 5 1/2"
Designed by Tim Holtz and manufactured by Sizzix

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 Texture Fades Embossing Folders are compatible with most die cutting and embossing hand-cranked machines including the BIGkick, Big Shot and Vagabond machines using a single Cutting Pad and the machine's included Platform.
