I recently held a technique class using Dry Embossing to create cards. I made a Clutch style bag containing four notelet cards, they measured 3" x 3" and each used a different embossing folder from Stampin' Up! The techniques used on the small cards could easily be transferred to larger scale projects both in card making and scrap booking.
The bag is created using paper measuring 8 1/2" x 11" there is no glue required it is all in the folding. I used Tempting Turquoise for the colour and added Silver Glimmer card to provide bling factor!
The template for the bag is quite simple I used the Simply Scored scoreboard and the diagonal plate for additional score lines. The scores create a box shape to store the cards easily. I used a Bow paperclip as a closure. A handle can be created from a strip of coordinating paper if desired, I have taken a picture to show the bag with a handle but I didn't attach to the final project. I embossed two pieces of card to use on the edge of the bag and I did have to use glue for those!! Full instructions for the bag and notelet cards can be found in the PDF file below. Happy Crafting!
