Hello and thanks for joining me.
Today I thought I’d show you the result from my first attempt at adding ink to an embossing folder….
When this Country Floral embossing folder was released as a Sale-A-Bration item earlier this year I saw lots of cards made using various techniques. It’s beautiful embossing folder on it’s own but I thought I’d give this inking version a try. It’s done by simply by dabbing the flat part of the folder with your ink pad. In my case I used Soft Sea Foam ink and a piece of Whisper White card measuring 9.5 x 13.5 cm. The ink transfers to the part f the card that doesn’t get embossed so you have white flowers on the green background.
My card base is Whisper White measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 14.5 cm. I then added a piece of Soft Sea Foam card measuring 10 x 14 cm and then my inked and embossed panel.
The sentiment is from the Woven Heirlooms stamp set in Soft Sea Foam ink on Whisper White card then cut with an oval die from Stitched Shapes. Before adding this to my card with dimensionals I added another piece of Soft Sea Foam card and Polka Dot ribbon.
I hope you like this effect as much as I do. It’s not perfect but it is pretty.
