Embossing Folder Inlays..

Updated: Jul 15, 2022

This may be me a little late to the party, but it hit me... how about inking over the reverse side of Embossing Folders to create Pearl/mirror inlays….


So this is super easy, take the card stock of your choice (in the above case - Gold Pearl Foundations card) and take a Distress Oxide ink pad and smooth it over the top of the card. You may wish to use a brayer to apply the ink over the top instead of your ink pad. Also, if the folder is more ‘open’ in it’s design, a brayer is a more solid tool to apply to the ink over the embossed card than the felt pad of an ink pad.

For a more vintage effect, leave the ink to dry on its own… or for a high gloss finish.. sprinkle on clear embossing powder!

Fancy a festive spin on it… introduce Frosty Sparkle Embossing Powder to give a glazed glitter effect.



Now let’s talk about variations…
