Allison Cope is here to share a project she created using embossing folders.

I love being able to use my tools in different ways, so I pulled out my Cuttlebug embossing folders and some ink and got to work experimenting with them

I first inked the DEBOSSED side (the negative side of the image) of my Cuttlebug folder with my lighter coloured distress inks. I moved my ink pad around in circles for a cool end result.

I carefully placed my paper inside the folder and embossed it using my Cuttlebug machine.

Then taking the same folder again, and using my brayer, I inked the EMBOSSED image side (the detailed tiny flowers and vines) with a darker shade of ink. I carefully put my already embossed piece of paper in the folder ensuring the embossed flowers were face up.

I put it through my machine again.

Here’s a card using the piece of paper I created. Notice the white vines and flowers from my first pass thorough the machine and then the darker flowers and vines from my final pass.
