Today's Stampin' Up! Class - Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder

Hi all,

Another great class with the ladies today, making two cards based on the Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder. These two cards were inspired and CASEd by some examples seen online, colours/sentiments were changed to create the below two cards:

Manhattan Flower Card 1

Stamps: Vintage Vogue (P.62) and Occasional Quotes (P.14 - Hostess Level 3).
Cardstock: Pink Pirouette and Whisper White.
Pretty In Pink.
Accessories: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Manhattan Flower, 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon - Whisper White, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, Paper Snips, Mini Glue Dots, Dimensionals and SU Bone Folder.
Card Size:

Someone clever has managed to see beyond the Manhattan Flower pattern to the outline of a "dress". See below for the basic outline:

Manhattan Flower Card 2

Stamps: Occasional Quotes (P.14 - Hostess Level 3).
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Very Vanilla.
Early Espresso.
Accessories: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Manhattan Flower, Scallop Edge Border Punch, 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon - Very Vanilla, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig and SU Bone Folder.
Card Size:

This card would be appropriate for most occasions by changing the sentiment whether it be a Happy Anniversary, Thank You, Thinking of You or Birthday card. The themes are endless and so are the colour combinations to create this simple and quick card.

Here are the two cards together:

Thanks for stopping by today, I'm really excited about September's Stampin' Up! Class as I have recently designed it for next month and am chuffed at the end results. Check back at the end of August for sneak peeks.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Bye for now,



  1. What gorgeous, sophisticated projects with that embossing folder, Alex! I especially love the monochromatic look of the second!

  2. I adore this folder and you've made two really lovely cards with it. The black and white one is my favourite!
