Simply Celebrate

Adding ink to an embossing folder before embossing can yield some surprising results. Have you tried it? Thoughts? 

   Happy Celebrations
   Timeless Textures

   Tip Top Taupe A-2
   Cherry on Top DSP 5-1/4 x 4
   Basic White 5 x 2-7/8, 5-1/4 x 4

   Tip Top Taupe

   Dry Embossing

   Kraft Corduroy Button
   Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder

First, I applied ink around "Celebrate" in the embossing folder. I carefully added my piece of Basic White and ran it through the embossing machine.

I then stamped around it a bit using stamps from the Timeless Textures stamp set.

I tore the Basic White around the sentiment, trying to create a jagged, uneven tear. Always tear paper toward you.

I sponged the torn edges with Tip Top Taupe.

I adhered the DSP panel to the Tip Top Taupe card base.

Next, I added the sentiment piece using dimensionals and attached the button on the lower-right corner. 

Lastly, I adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I agree adding ink to an emboss folder makes some great BGs. Wonderful card you created with the technique.

    1. Thank you so much, Lisa. My results seem to vary, but I guess that is what makes them unique. Thank you so much for stopping by here and taking the time to comment. I appreciate it.
