A Texture Tutorial for You!

This week I wanted to show you how to use those gorgeous Cuttlebug embossing dies in other way other than just embossing.
  1. cardstock
  2. ink
  3. embossing folder
  4. brayer
  5. die cut machine
Steps to a Cool Effect
  1. Gather your supplies together.
  2. Evenly load the brayer with ink. Try rolling it across the pad in multiple directions for more even coverage.
  3. Roll the inked brayer across the surface of the RAISED side of the Cuttlebug die. The brayer works great in this case because it gives you even coverage of the raised surfaces and doesn’t allow excess ink to drip into the grooves.
  4. Carefully lay your piece of cardstock on top of the inked surface.
  5. Send the sandwiched folder through your die cut machine.
  6. Use the inked and embossed cardstock to create a card of your own design.
