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.
|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.|
