Tim Holtz Sizzix Halloween 2022 Release - Skulls Embossing Folder Card

Hello Lovelies! This may look nothing like me, but as you saw in Tim Holt's August 6th YouTube LIVE for his Sizzix Halloween 2022 Release, the folder is spectacular!!! I'm definitely not the spookiest girl out there, but I do love a bit of naughtiness and highly recommend not taking yourself too seriously.

So I ended up falling for skulls who of course can be purchase individually but comes with the full release bundle with all the goodies available at Simon Says Stamp.

That's not the only bundle worth checking out, I'll be using the recently announced Tim Holtz Ranger Halloween release goodies in this card. check out the bundle below for all you will need and then some!

Today's card use these new seasonal colors of Distress Crayons as well as Mica Stains to to have some tongue in cheek fun!

One of the things that I love about this project is that you dont need that many things to pull it off, take a peek at the essentials below:

Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"





Place a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock into the Skulls Embossing Folder and run through a die-cutting machine to emboss.


Using the Distress Crayons, add color to the raised section of the skulls as shown in the following order:

  1. Iron Gate

  2. Burning Ember

  3. Harvest Moon

  4. Decayed

tIron Gatefinger to smudge the color into the paper. Note: Gloves are not necessary, but I had a white manicure that is prone to becoming stained...

Position embossed card front in Splat Box to prepare for spraying it.

Spray small sections of the card front with Decayed Distress Mica Stain:

  • top left

  • top right

  • just under the back of the orange skull

  • Just under the chin of the yellow skull

  • bottom left



Place a sheet of Black Distress Halloween Woodgrain Cardstock into a Splat box and spray with Iron Gate and Burning Ember Distress Mica Stains.

Dry with a heat tool.

Dried background should look something similar to this.



  1. Use the "Feeling Wicked" Halloween Bold Text die to diecut the sentiment out of the Black Woodgrain Cardstock.

  2. Pop out the letters and set aside the letters temporarily.

  3. Use low tack tape to momentarily adhere the negative die-cut to the Card Front.

  4. Place glue on the die-cut letters and insert them into the corresponding open spaces so they align perfectly.

Apply Foam Tape to the back of the Card Front.



  1. Place a follow of Gilded Foundry Wax on your craft sheet.

  2. Apply the wax onto the yellow skulls teeth using a small paint brush.

  3. Clean brush with water and headset the wax with a heat tool.


I can't believe that I love this folder as much as I do, but look at the embossed detail covered in Distress Crayon and Mica Stain!

Foundry Wax for the win! Add a little rhinestone if you are feeling extra saucy!

Love the woodgrain pattern on the die-cut letters. The little snippet from the phrase "Focus on the Good" from the Label Stickers Thoughts Set completed the sentiment for me.

In my ridiculous imagination, these two skulls are good friends and are laughing about a shared memory :-)

Happy Halloween Lovelies!
