Welcome, welcome, welcome to the third challenge here at
Let's Squash It!
Let's Squash It! is The Embossing Folder Challenge. We are gonna help you explore the world of the not so humble embossing folder and encourage you to dig 'em out, knock the dust off and find old, new and fun ways to make your projects pop.
We have an awesome team to keep you entertained and awesome challenge themes to stretch your creativity and get you using all those long forgotten and neglected embossing folders.
Use any Embossing Folder AND Dies/Fussy Cutting
Use any embossing folder and also die cuts or fussy cutting. You can
use an emboss and cut folder, or a die cut with a matching folder, or
chop up your embossed thing, or emboss a die cut thing or fussy cut thing, or just add a
die cut or fussy cut something to your embossed background. Please make sure you include both parts of the challenge on your card and also check da roolz to ensure your entry will be eligible for the random prize draw!
We are very pleased to have our first Let's Squash It!! Empress joining us as our guest designer this month. Please welcome Linda.
"Hey sister Squashettes – I’m Linda W. (aka ScrappinBari) who blogs at Scrappin’, Stampin’ & Singin’. I started out scrapbooking but switched over to card making in 2007. I live in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA & haunt several local craft stores! How many embossing folders do you own? I own a fair few and am grateful to Gail & Jo for bring them into play at Let’s Squash It!! I’m delighted to be their first Guest Designer!!!”

I've been wanting to enter your challenge since the beginning and I finally made it! Yay! Great theme and awesome inspiration - thank you!
Such a fun challenge, Gail & Jo! I'm honored to be your Guest Designer this time!!
Another great challenge - I'm sure there are many neglected embossing folders just waiting to be used. I have a 'few' (lots if I'm honest) 😉
Cards only? Or is an ATC etc ok as long as it fits the theme?
And we're so happy to have you here, Linda! Jo x
So glad you're in the gallery! Jo x
Hi Val, it's surprising just how many embossing folders we seem to have acquired over the years! This challenge is just what we all need to help us to use them. Thanks for joining the fun! Jo x
Hi Joanne, sorry, but this was a cards only challenge theme. We'll probably do ATCs at some point in the future as they are so much fun to create. Jo x
OK, no worries - I just made a giftcard/ATC inspired by the theme but wasn't sure whether to hook it up or not!
Entry #64 - I thought I had already entered this card and had it down as #48 but couldn't see it in the entries. After some investigation, I found I had entered it into another challenge by mistake. I have now added it here (which is why my second entry comes before my first!). Must have needed more sleep that day.
Let's just put it down to Christmas confusion, Suze! Great to have you in the gallery, Jo x
Yay!!! I actually made a card....got it blogged....AND entered it into more than one or two challenges!!! It's the first time since the beginning of September that I have managed to do that. You can't imagine what a feeling of accomplishment that gives me...lol... What a crazy last several months I have had!!! Anywaaaaaaaaaay....I am here!!
Lovely cards by you wonderful Squashettes. Welcome to Linda. Your paneled card is so pretty!! Love Gail's simply elegant card with that satiny foiled blue sky. Wow!! Jo, your embossed and inked flowers are wonderfully gentle in pastel lavender for a thoughtful sympathy card. Great samples by each of you!!
Thank you, gals, for this fun challenge. I hope I can get my life together enough to participate more regularly. (Not optimistic, but I can dream, right? lol...)

So happy to have found this challenge - I have a ton of Embossing folders that need to be USE in card making [I will have to locate the names of the folders as not all are written on the folder - like the 2 Tim Holtz ones I used for this challenge] - this is an inspiring challenge! I am very Happy to get my 3 cards created and entered before this challenge ends in a few days - thanks for the challenge - and card inspiration - this is going to be a fun journey! Have a blessed week!
Perhaps this challenge will help us name some of our forgotten and neglected embossing folders! Unfortunately I missed the deadline on this one, but embossing folders are now on my mind when I go to make a card - they are a great way to add a quick background. I even raided my stash this week to use some core’dinations (remember that stuff)! I bought it specifically to use with embossing folders but it too had been largely forgotten about!
