  1. I don’t even know where to start with these fabulous cards! While I don’t usually get very excited about embossing folders, these have truly grabbed my attention! I especially like how adding a bit of color to the basketweave one made such a big difference on the one card. Just loved it! The wood plank one is also fantastic as it adds a subtle bit of texture to the design. And, like you, I still think the Altenew HUGS die is one of the prettiest dies and so perfect for including on a card. ❤️❤️

  2. Love these cards, Vicky! My favorite is the Pots and Plants with the Woven Basket embossing folder. Those two are a perfect pair.

  3. I love the background embossing folders – have to say, that basket weave is my fave so the 1st card is my favorite. Love them all.


  5. Great cards Vicky! I really love the ice cream sundae card with the chocolate dripping down from the top. Very unique!

  6. I absolutely love how your backgrounds go so incredibly well with your focal points. The basket weave and the ice cream sundae cards are particularly amazing. For someone who just does quick coloring and who isn’t keen on coloring you do an amazing job!!! Thank you for sharing these gorgeous, stunning and fun cards. Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Your cards are fantastic! Thank you for sharing the video. The plants in a basket and that basket weave embossing folder are my favorites from the new collection \

  8. Love all the backgrounds used. So perfect for each card. Never seen the woven background before. Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Beautiful cards Vicky. The color combo you used for the basket with the plant is amazing. The ice cream sundae is also beautiful. I like how your coloring turned out since I’m not good with layering stamps, but I see it looks also great coloring it!

  10. I’m not much of a card maker, but I’ve been watching all your journal spreads lately (after a hiatus) and now I just can’t get enough. I know you hear this all the time, but there is just something so relaxing and soothing about your videos ♡ I’m so inspired!

  11. Discovered your channel not too long ago and I’ve been hooked. All your cards have the WOW factor, easpecially the first one with the basket weave. Thank you for sharing.

  12. Wow!!!! I just love these cards Vicky!! Love the die cut background for the sundae!! So clever!!! Wonderful colouring and designs!!Thanks so much for the great inspiration!! Stay safe and have a wonderful Christmas! 🙂

  13. It’s so hard to pick a favorite as all three cards are great but I think I’ll go with the first card with the potted plant. I really like the way you colored the basket weave embossing folder and what a wonderful background it made but I also really like the last card. The waves of chocolate coming from the top really make the card. Thanks for sharing!

  14. Great cards! I really like those 2 embossing folders you used- delightful and great for sooo many types of cards. I love textured backgrounds.

  15. Love the look of that basket weave embossing folder. I swear each release has included a wonderful 3d folder that is just classic. So versatile.

  16. No way to pick a favorite, because they are all so good. I both want to buy a new houseplant and crave an ice cream sundae at the same time. ?
