Ink Embossing folder technique

Pin It
Here are some examples of inking the embossing folder. You could get a similar look by just sponging after you emboss with the folder, the difference is...this technique gets the indented part inked.  We love different ways to use our tools.

The birthday and the dahlia cards were made by Susan Adams

Ink the side you want to use. If you are using the new foam pads and you want a darker image, press the pad onto the embossing folder.  If you want it lighter, rub the pad on the folder.
Then just place your cardstock in the folder.
Hold it tight together as you move it to the Big Shot so it doesn't slide around.
Run it through as you usually would.
I inked both sides so you could see the difference.
This is the side I would use. It just depends on the look you are going for.
