Use your Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder at a Stamp Technique

I hope you have got your weekend off to a good start,
We are being kept busy, with lots of giggles as our new puppy, Bentley settles into our family

Today's card brings you a new way to use your Embossing Folders
This technique, uses the embossing folder as a stamp.
It does stain the embossing folder, so be prepared. I clean mine with Stampin Mist 
I have seen various cards using this technique, but haven't seen any that sponge the the background before using the Embossing Folder as a stamp
Although I suspect I am not the first person to come up with this idea.

I made various prototypes of this card, some with sponging, and others without. I also used a sponge dauber to add colour to the trees, and other ideas, but this is the design I settled on as it just seemed to work as I wanted.

  • Trim a piece of Thicker Whisper White Cardstock to 6" x 6"; score the long side at 10.5 cms; fold & burnish; put the card base to one side
  • Trim a piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 14.1 cms x 14.1 cms; sponge the sky section with a combination of Lost Lagoon and Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pads; Sponge the bottom section of the panel with Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad
  • Ink up the Embossing Folder nearest the fold using the Mossy Meadow Classic Ink Pad. Going up about half way up the TIEF, and ensuring it is the side with the 'SIZZIX'  logo
  • With a piece of Kitchen Towel, gently remove some of the ink at the top end of the TIEF, to diffuse the edges of the inked sections
  • Insert the sponged panel ensuring the green sponging is adjacent to the fold of the TIEF; Run through your Big Shot
  • Allow the cardstock to gently fall from the embossing folder to avoid smudging.
  • Mat onto a piece of Lost Lagoon Cardstock measuring 14.5 x 14.5 cms using Fast Fuse/Tombow Adhesive
  • Using the Soft Suede Classic Ink Pad, stamp the Christmas label stamp from the Antique Tags Hostess Stamp Set, onto Whisper White Cardstock; Punch out using the Washi Label Punch
  • Apply a couple of Stampin Dimensionals to the back of the label, and mount onto your card front.
  • Mount your card front onto your card base using Fast Fuse / Tombow Adhesive
  • Finish by applying a Stampin Dimensional to a large Snowflake Element and mount onto the card front so it overlaps the sentiment; Top with a large Metal Rimmed Pearl.
