I was excited that some of my pre-ordered embossing folders finally found my mailbox today. I chose to use bird call and a negative cuttlebug technique by inking up the back negative portion and then pressure embossing. The full tutorial is on Splitcoast, so I am going to show you some of the other steps I took.
Start by tearing a sheet of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" computer paper into 3 sections.
Keep the middle section and lightly adhere the ends to a piece of cream CS cut to 4" x 5 1/4".
Ink Baroque Background (Stamp Oasis section) with Tea Dye Distress ink and stamp over the layers.
Remove the mask from the left side leaving the right side in place, add the center portion and stamp
the script (How do I love thee (Rubbernecker) to cover the exposed CS.
Open the embossing folder up and using a rubber brayer, ink up the negative portion (inside back) using
Weathered Wood Distress ink. Use a tissue to remove any ink from unwanted areas. Sandwhich and emboss
Sponge edges with Tea Dye and the image with Weathered Wood to soften.
Embellish and assemble on your card base as desired. I chose a wonderful remnant of
vintage lace for my border, wove Silk Anna Griffin ribbon through it and added linen
cross stitching in a couple places. The fabulous sentiment stamp is also from
Rubbernecker Stamp Co. in the Stamp Oasis Section and was stamped in Walnut Stain
