I love this! I have so much trouble with actual Letterpress Folders from other companies, but the Cuttlebug, in this case, or the Big Shot,etc., and the embossing folders are an easy, simple approach for me and my Card Club Gal's. Thank you, Gina( once again:), for a beautiful idea with an easily explained tutorial!

Hi Gina, I thought I was being very original when I used a similar idea - I used a brayer to spread the ink evenly and smoothy - you can get a different effect by first inking the raised side of the embossing folder and wash it thoroughly. Then use the same technique but roll your ink onto the debossed side of the embossing folder. It gives two absolutely different looks. Both are very striking when used with dark or bright coloured inks. I love your videos and have just ordered some stamp sets for the very first time. Lorraine Briel - from sunny South Africa

Every time I watch one of your videos I get so excited.  This is such a great card for a wedding invite also with an antique linen on the pressed and a cream darker on the embossed.  Love it!  As usual!
