Evolution Advanced Card Set

Hello We R Fans! Kimberly here with two cards today showcasing the fantastic Evolution Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. The Evolution is a powerful die cutting machine that can tackle many mediums, but it also easily embosses with the turn of a crank. It is easy to use, which makes your creativity flow faster!

To start my cards, I chose two products that I wanted to use, the Gems Dies and the Geometric Embossing Folder. I knew they would add amazing detail and texture to my cards.

I began by embossing Rose Quartz cardstock. The pink paper was placed inside the Geometric Embossing Folder. Then it was placed on the Platform Plate and topped with the Genius Mat.

On the side of the Evolution is a knob that adjusts the rollers inside the machine. Following the illustrations around the knob, I turned to the embossing portion. A simple crank of the handle and the embossing was done.

The depth of this Next Level Embossing Folder is so fantastic!

I love the texture it adds to the card.

It is remarkable what a hint of depth does to make a card go from ok, to wow!

Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection bits and pieces were added to the card.

With the faceted look of the embossing folder, adding the Gem Dies images was perfect! Using metallic gold paper, I die cut each of the images.

With the Evolution, going from embossing to die cutting is a breeze. I placed my die on the Platform Plate, cutting edge up. Topped it with gold paper, face down. Covered that with the Genius platform. All that needed to be changed for die cutting was the settings on the side of the machine. I quickly turned the knob to die cutting and passed it all through the machine with a crank of the handle.

The details are perfect and the metallic gold paper adds so much shine! All the papers and pieces from the Moonstruck collection finished off these dreamy and romantic cards beautifully!
