I’ve got another fun embossing folder technique to share with you today! This is week 4 of my month long focus on different ways to use your embossing folders. If you missed the previous techniques, I’ll link them below.
It’s been so fun to play around with different ways to use embossing folders. I love the way this weeks card turned out. It gives more of an artistic, not so perfect background and I love it!
Here are the steps to create the background:
- Emboss a piece of thick basic white card stock with the fern embossing folder. I misted my card stock with a bit of water on both sides before embossing to get a nice deep impression.
- Choose three ink colours and gently rub over top of the raised areas. Start with the lightest colour and work your way to the darkest colour using a light hand, until the entire surface is pretty much covered.
- Mist with water so that the inks blend.
- Once dry, trim as needed and assemble the card.
It’s hard to tell from the photos but the word thanks is cut from black card stock that has been added to some foam adhesive sheets. So the whole word is popped up. I love the look of this! It really gives the card a professional touch.
You can catch the replay of the Facebook live where I created this card below.
