Lovely Lace Embossing Folder


I had so much interest in the last two posts that I wanted you to see the same technique with another Embossing Folder that's called Lovely Lace.


I used a Garden Green ink pad, applied directly to the inside of the LOGO flap of the Embossing Folder. After running thru the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, the ink imprints on the background only.


Here is another idea: emboss your envelope flap to coordinate! It makes a lovely presentation!

I'm going to show you how to get FANTASTIC results from the Woodland Embossing Folder.


Start by adding ink to the INSIDE of the LOGO side of the embossing folder. I simply dragged my open Marina Mist Ink Pad across the folder. You may also add ink by brayer or sponge. Run thru the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.


Next, I added a touch of Sahara Sand Ink to the branch using a sponge dauber. This is an option step.


To define the bark, I used the FINE TIP of a Tip Top Taupe Marker and quickly marked the branch dents. Then I added a thin line along the LEFT SIDE of all the vertical branches to act as a slight shadow.


The sentiment is minimal because the branches are the texture & detail of this card.


DON'T stress over any imperfections. Nature has LOTS of variation!! Please try this cool idea and get MORE from your Woodland Embossing Folder!! Click in tomorrow to see a Navy version completed.

Dies Create Stencils


Today I used the Delicate Ornment Thinlits Dies to create a stencil. With Real Red Ink and a Sponge Dauber I scrubbed in lots of color to make the ornament. Last I embellishment with Gold Glimmer Paper. This is a quick easy card and lets you get more use from your dies!
