Magenta's new paper collection, Color Me Softly, is at the store. We're so excited to be one of the first stores in the country to offer these beautiful papers.
Now that the paper collection has been officially released, I can post these pics from our visit to Magenta's headquarters in Montreal earlier this month.

Partial Embossing Technique used to create Envelope Book Boo Banner:
Step 3: Adhere paper to envelope, and angle cut bottom on both sides, meeting at the center to create a v or flag shape. Make sure not to cut too high, or your tag will hang out!
Step 5: Crank die cutting machine partially to emboss, making sure to stop before envelope hits machine and becomes crushed.
Step 6: Repeat to desired effect
Step 8: Using Ink Pad, directly drag ink across embossed area’s and edges of envelope to really make them pop.
Once complete, allow ink to dry, and decorate as desired!! Repeat for desired length of banner, alternating embossed area’s on each envelope!
Also, for added strength of your banner, trace shape onto chipboard, cut out and adhere to the back!
