Today we're showing an easy technique that produces stunning results! All you need is:

  • Card stock of your choice
  • Embossing Template
  • Ink Pad
  • Spellbinders Grand Calibur die cutting machine


1. Open the embossing folder and tap the ink pad, face down, on the side of the embossing folder that has the recessed design. (This is the side that will be against the card face.)

2. Insert the card stock into the embossing folder and run the embossing sandwich through the die cutting machine, using the plates necessary for embossing folders. That's all there is to it!

When a technique this easy produces such impressive results, you'll be trying it again and again, using different color combinations of paper and ink.
