April 2015 Technique - Inked Embossing Folder Background

Did you know that your Embossing Folders can do double duty?  That is just what we are going to do with this great technique, and it is so easy!  Which in my opinion makes it that much better!!

So here we go! 

Apply ink to the positive side of your embossing folder, lay a piece of white cardstock in the folder, close and use your brayer to transfer the ink from the folder to the cardstock. 

 Here is our first card - Thinking of You
