– Using an Embossing Folder to “Stamp”
Since the folders are clear, it’s easy to see when ink has been applied to other areas of the folder. Carefully wipe off excess ink before inserting paper into the folder.
I made the last project a little bit differently. I added ink to the raised surface of the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder before running it through the Big Shot. I used a brand new In Color—Strawberry Slush—for my ink and cardstock. I really like the subtle variation in color created by tone-on-tone stamping.
Cleaning up the inked embossing folders is a breeze. I simply ran them under some water in the sink and dried them with a paper towel.
Although this technique can be a little tricky, I love finding new uses for tools I already have. So go ink up your embossing folders and have some fun!
