I thought that the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder was a perfect fit for this beachy card, and I finally figured out the correct sandwich in my die-cutting machine for the new embossing folders. Thank you, YouTube! The new style of folders is slightly thinner than the old Sizzix ones, so you need to use the new blue 3D Embossing Folder Plate with them. I am using my Big Shot, so my sandwich was the regular platform on the bottom, then the embossing folder, then the blue embossing plate.
Easy! When I tried using a 3D folder a few weeks ago, I must have tried every other possible way except for that one. Oh well, now I know, and you do too!
Here's a close up of the embossing. I can think of a few other stamp sets that this would work great with!
