Birthday Accessories

Embossing Birthday Napkins

Yesterday I posted the card I made for my sister, Sandy's birthday.  Today, I have the embossed napkins that I made using my Big Shot to share with you.  Another Team Member, Sue Lepako, showed us this technique last month.  I just had to try it myself and share it with you. 

This makes the inexpensive Discount Store napkins look elegant and upscale.  And they are very easy to do make using our embossing folders and the Big Shot.

This is how I lined up the embossing folder.  The imprinted edge of the napkin is along the outer edge of the embossing folder which keeps the Vintage Wallpaper embossing inside on the plain part of the napkin.

My finished set of napkins.

Matching Napkins and Card. 

Hope you enjoyed this little "how-to" tutorial.  One of the things I love about Stampin' Up! is being able to match the colors of my papers and accessories.  And with these embossing folders and the Big Shot, you can match party supplies and decorations, too.
