I know that it has been over a month since I last posted a tutorial. I have been working hard to create some new projects and “trying” to create some process videos you can watch. Please understand, I am trying to learn and we have limited internet at my house, so finding an offline editor has been tricky. I attempted a program called Filmora and it was a bust. After six hours of editing, it left a watermark covering half my screen and took five hours to convert to MP4. (Sorry I am ranting) So…instead of a video like I had hoped, this week, I am going to show you how to use your embossing folders to create and inked background♥.
Paper Needed: 5½ x 4¼ Heather Cardstock, 5¼ x 4 Heather Cardstock, 5 x 3¾ White Daisy Cardstock, Sweet Girl Cut Apart Sheet, 5 x 2 Ballerina Cardstock
To create an inked embossed background, you will need to start with an embossing folder that has a larger image. (I have tried this technique with delicate images and the images don’t appear as crisp.) I chose to use our new Flower Garden Embossing Folder. You will notice that there are two sides to the embossing folder♥ – one where the images are raised and the other where the images are inset. We are going to use the side that has the logo on it – the side with the inset images.
Place the White Daisy cardstock onto the uninked side of the embossing folder. Carefully, close the folder and keep it closed while you place it between the plates of your embossing machine. If you move the cardstock, you risk the chance of your image smearing.
After embossing your cardstock, remove from the folder and set aside. Rinse your embossing folder with some warm water, dish soap if needed, and set-aside to dry. That is all you need to create this beautiful inked embossed background.
The rest of the card is very simple to make. This technique can be used on cards, scrapbook pages, and home decor projects. This Inked Embossed background creates such a ♥beautiful accent to anything you make.
I will be continuing to search for an offline editor so that I can finish the process video for you. If you have an suggestions, please comment below.
♥I can’t wait to see what you create!
