Oh wow!  What a cool technique!  I'd never heard of this before.  Thanks so much for sharing, Gina.

I love the results of this technique!  It gives an entirely different look from the usual embossing method. You always bring new inspiration to my projects!

This is totally different from the giraffe card because that one had a random crinkled background and this one uses a cuttlebug folder to create a specific pattern. The crinkled background brings to mind an animal print and works great for cards with animals, nature, etc... This technique creates more of a batik look and is much more uniform.

I haven't seen any build up as of yet on my folders so i think it just makes the impression without too much residue. As far as temperature, I have mine all the way to the hottest setting. I'm sure each iron is different. I think it's kind of a test and see thing. :)

Hi Sally,

When you use the folder on the wax paper and then iron it on to the card stock, you can ink up the piece of paper and get a two tone look with no raised areas. It's a totally different look that the raised look of the embossing. Plus, it's so fun! :) You can do single colors like I did or multi-tone effects by using more than one ink color to bring out the pattern.
