I was excited to receive the Botanicals 3D Embossing Folder in a card kit a couple months ago and was excited to see what they were all about. The main difference between a normal embossing folder and a 3D embossing folder is that when you emboss a regular embossing folder, the embossed area is all the same height or depth depending how you look at it. With a 3D embossing folder, they are different heights which creates a more realistic and detailed appearance.
I used my Gemini Jr to emboss these since it had specific instructions for 3D folders. Check your machines manufacturers website from instructions on how to do it if you don't have a Gemini or Gemini Jr.
Whether you are embossing or debasing you are getting a stunning look on those backgrounds. They are quite busy for my style though so I paired them with very subtle embellishments from Altenew's Create-a-Wreath die that I cut in white and vellum cardstock.
