New Embossing Folder Tutorial

Have you seen the new Embossalicious folders?  Just lovely!  Trena Brannon made this fabulous card featuring the new 6" X 6" Embossalicious Embossing Folder - Ornate Bufferflies.    Here are the details from her blog post on how she made her card...

 I ran the folder through my eBosser onto a piece of A Little Bit Oriental - Papercrafting Collection - Luxury Designer Paper Pad and also Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock 

I rubbed a Delicata Rich and Radiant GoldenGlitz ink pad (coming soon to Crafter's Companion!) gently over the piece of white to catch the embossed design.

A tip on saving paper/ I cut out one of the butterflies with a circle die cut near the center of the embossed piece for my focal point. I trimmed the design paper and leftover piece of embossed white layers for an A2 size greeting card.  I edged the white pieces of my design with the gold ink pad.

After all the ink dried, I adhered all the layers of the card. Sheena's design paper is two sided. I decided on the flip side after positioning it next to the gold. I love choices!  You can see the embossing on the design paper in this photo.

On the inside I added a small version of the butterfly that was left over on the scrap embossed piece. I cut it out with a small circle die and layered over the design paper.
