Fall Leaf 3D embossing folder techniques

Page 53, Fall Mini Catalog

It is difficult to find this embossing folder in the current Mini Catalog ~ look at the top of page 53.  One way to use it is to actually add ink directly to the folder.  You can add it on one side of the folder or both sides.  The two pictures below show the difference in the two sides.

Cut the cardstock into squares and add them to your card with 2 pieces facing up one way and the other 2 pieces showing the reverse.

Also, try embossing Metallic cardstock.

You could also use pastels once you have run your cardstock through the embossing machine.  Use the Soft Pastels Assortment (154585, page 126 AC) by scraping the pastel with the spatula end of the 'Take A Pick' tool.  Blend the dust with your fingers over the embossed leaves.

You may also want to try markers, watercolor pencils, blending brushes or your water painter!  Whatever you try ~ relax and have fun!  Send me a picture of your creation ~ I would love to see what you created!  Susan Elise
