Here is a project I did for THE CUTTING CAFE!!! I used the Greeting Card Folder cutting file. Since I embellished my cards with ribbons, I made only 4 A2 size cards and matching envelopes. Regina has designed some really AMAZING printable stamps as well as cutting files at THE CUTTING CAFE so make sure and stop by.
I used my Cricut Cuttable Embossing Kit to create a personalized folder. I created the design in my Cricut Design Studio using the following carts: StoryBook (for the initials); Alphalicious (for the scallop oval) and Home Accents (for the Hummingbird). Once I had the size I wanted, I put the cuttable material on my mat, set my Deep Blade at 4.5, Pressure MAX and Multi-cut 2X. This was the very first time I tried making my very own embossing folder. I used one of my regular embossing folders as a "guide" of where all my cuts would go on the folder. Then I figured out that in order for the initials, scallops and bird to be my embossed items, I had to put the "Negative" of my image on the TOP of the folder and the "Positive" on the bottom. Here are two sample pictures:
