Technique Thursday: Beautifully Baroque Wedding Card

Welcome back to Technique Thursday (actually on Friday since I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday!)  Today I will show you how you can use the brayer and an embossing folder to create a unique background.

But first, here’s my card!

Beautifully Baroque (Christine et Marc)

Do you see how the background is embossed and colored? That’s very easy to do when you know how to do it!

First step is to ink your brayer (I used Pool Party on this card). Then roll the brayer on the inside of your embossing folder (top part, where the writing and Stampin’up logo are), in order to ink the top part. Place your White card stock inside your embossing folder and run through the Big Shot. The ink on the embossing folder will transfer on your paper as it is embossed! Really cool! For this card, I used the “Beautifully Baroque” embossing folder.

For the rest of the card, I used the Beautifully Baroque stamp with Coastal Cabana ink. I added some Daffodil Delight ink with the marker on the outer edge and with a sponge dauber (in the inside). I used the Oval Framelits to cut the 2 ovals.

The Beautifully Baroque stamp and embossing folder can be bought together as a bundle for $23.75. Only available until June 2nd! Click here to order today!

The inside of the card was also pretty “special!” I used the Card Base Pop ‘n Cuts and the Label Pop ‘n Cuts die to make this 3D pop-up card! The “pop-up” is the same shape of the Deco Label Framelits, so that’s what I used to cut a beautiful piece of “Eastern Elegance” designer series paper. (That paper matches perfectly with the Beautifully Baroque stamp!)

The Card base Pop ‘n Cuts and inserts are on sale right now 25%! Click here to order yours! These items will also be discontinued in a few days only.
