Embossing flourishes – by Chloe Nielsen

I really love my FWAB flourishes.  I would add them to every single page if I could!  I’m always on the lookout for different things I can do with them and recently, I decided to try embossing them.

I have lots of different embossing folders for my Big Shot … like these …p7258644

And while I didn’t get progress photos for this, it’s all pretty easy.

Step one:  Choose a “flat” FWAB flourish (like Jasmine, Luke, Jessie – not the pearl ones – you could even try some of the FWAB Outdoor range!)

Step Two:  Remove from packaging but NOT from the backing sheet.

Step Three:  Place in embossing folder and run through your machine.

Step Four:  Remove flourish from backing sheet and place on your project!

Easy as that!


I’ve used a FWAB Luke Flourish in Teal and a FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Gold on the above page, embossing them in a swirl pattern (Luke Flourish) and a script pattern (Jasmine flourish).

IMG_5804aLove the texture it gives!  And it made the flourishes curl up a bit – which I really liked – so I emphasised the effect and helped it stay there with tiny bits of foam tape.


You’ll spy a FWAB Maddison Flowers – Chocolate there too!!

So, there you go, a nice easy tutorial to add some extra WOW factor to your FWAB flourishes!  Hope you can give it a go!
