Honestly, I love all my Altenew embossing folders. This is a very versatile folder that could work for many occasions.
The impression is crisp but my paper seems almost warped. It does not lay quite flat .
I love it, but: There’s so much detail at the point where the swirls converge that this 3D folder didn’t work well for several of the kinds of cardstock I tested. Some tore (even when sprayed with a light mist prior to embossing), others distorted (as if the paper had been stretched and wouldn’t lay flat). Fortunately, other sheets are absolutely PERFECT. Will stick to soft-fiber heavyweight cardstock from now on. Suggestion - Test with a 3” square placed in the upper left corner if you want to make sure you don’t waste favorite sheets.
