I’ve been spending a LOT of time lately playing with embossing folders to get a faux letterpress look lately and I finally have a finished card to share with you:
To do the faux letterpress, I simply ink up one side of the embossing folder with a brayer and pigment ink refills, then run it through my machine OPEN with an embossing mat from Spellbinders. In this case, I inked up the side with more surface area using 2 purple A Muse ink refills.
Here’s a close shot so hopefully you can see some of the dimension from the debossing:
The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug and I also used stamp sets from Avery Elle: Build A Banner and its matching dies and Petals and Stems for the sentiment. This is for the Avery Elle challenge – ombre/gradient. I hope you like it and TFL!
