Inked Embossing

If you want a different look for your embossing folders, take your Brayer and ink the flat surface of the folder.  Now your raised embossed image really stands out against the inked background.  There are so many uses for the Brayer, and that is the one accessory I need to use more often.

My card base is Very Vanilla cardstock with a layer of Soft Suede and then my inked embossed layer which is just another cut piece of Very Vanilla cardstock run through the Big Shot using Pool Party ink on my Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder.  Instead of using ribbon for my bow, I cut a piece of Spice Cake Designer Fabric.  I have quite a bit of Stampin' Up! fabric, and since I don't really sew I decided to use it in place of ribbon on some of my projects, and I really like the look.  My sentiment was punched out using the Decorative Label Punch and to get the second Soft Suede punch in the background I just cut another Decorative Label Punch with Soft Suede cardstock and cut the center out of it and then placed these pieces behind the full sized punch.

For today's card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla #101650, Soft Suede #115318
Stamp Set:  Curvy Verses #114948
Ink:  Pool Party #122938
Embellishment:  Spice Cake Designer Fabric #124066 (Holiday Mini)
Punch:  Decorative Label #120907
Accessories:  Big Shot #113439, Petals-a-Plenty Embossing Folder #116824, Dimensionals #104430
