Stampin' Up! Embossing Folder Technique

This card is done using a fun technique.  You take your embossing folder and you ink it up using your ink pad and a brayer.  Then you insert  your card stock in the folder and run it through your Big Shot.  The ink is on the card stock and the raised textured part is clean and clear.  On this card the inverted part of the texture is exposed.  What is fun with this technique is, if you brayer both sides of the embossing folder you get to pick which side you like the best to use as your background (or focal) part of the card.  

This is a card that Terri had made.  I know the color is Lucky Limeade.  What I love about this card is all the layers and textures going on in it.  There's Dimensionals used, two embossed pieces, layers, ribbons, scallops, and punches. And it's SO pretty!

I have done the brayer in the embossing folder technique before and have liked it.  I have not yet used it with the new ink pads.  They seem to cover better than the older ones for some interesting reason.  I will eventually be replacing all of my ink pads in time.  Not all at once, I just can't afford that.  I have plenty of ink to keep me going on the old pads.  Plus the new ink works on the old pads but the old ink will NOT work on the new pads!  So either way I'm good until the pads show too much wear that they NEED to be replaced.  It's such a waste to replace them just because I feel I need to keep up with what's on the market.   Ok, environmental rant done!!! LOL

I'm off to work on a fun project and of course I will share it with you when I'm done.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
