Sophia's Garden

This lovely embossing folder is called "Sophia's Garden" and it is made by Craft Concepts. The image was embossed on antique linen card stock. The coloring was done with colored pencils and blended with a odorless solvent. The coloring emphasizes the linen look of the card stock. The stamp is from a clear set by Hero Arts. The two punched butterflies are by Martha Stewart.

I tried to color the folder with markers and then emboss but I never was able to achieve a clean look. I am going to try this again on a smooth card stock and see how the coloring turns out.

Have a great day! I am finishing some chores and then off to work. Thanks for visiting!


  1. Very pretty and great job on the coloring. I have given up on the Sizzix folder after throwing away about 6 whole sheets of card stock. I won't buy another one, that's for sure.

  2. What a great idea to use the textured paper, Debbie...this looks elegant and pretty!!!!

  3. This looks so soft and pure, very much like a young girls pretty Easter dress, love the colors!


So happy you stopped by and thanks for sharing your thoughts!
