Moana at http://www.studio824.wordpress.com taught me a neat technique to use with my Woodland embossing folder. This is the card that she brought to the demonstrator’s swap last month, and I loved it, because almost everyone else has done what I did with this folder – run the card stock through clean and then sponged ink on the trees afterwards. If you’ll notice, on Moana’s card the ink is on the background and the trees are left white – how did she do that, I asked?
First open the embossing folder and lay it flat, then brayer Smoky Slate ink on the background side, where the trees are recessed. The Sizzix logo is on that side. Then put a piece of blank Whisper White cardstock inside the folder and run it through the Big Shot.
When it comes out, the background and the lines on trees will be inked, but the birch trees will remain white. Thanks, Moana, for this great idea!
