Embossed Woodlands


I found a piece of (r) SU! text dsp and ran it through the Big Shot with the SU! Woodlands ef inked on one side with soft suede ink. I really like the dimension this gives to the finished panel. I added a die-cut red bird done with a SNSS die, along with a SB Ribbon Tag die cut, and a SU! sentiment. The ribbon was from my stash, and I die cut the early espresso card base with a Lil Inker stitched rectangle die.

I'm sharing this over at the Tuesday Throwdown #294 which is "embossing."

Thanks for checking in today and have a great day!

When I saw the title of this I thought the trees were heat embossed. Now I see what you did. This is fabulous and very clever!

I, too, love the effect of this inked up embossing folder. Mine never seems to come out that good when I try it, but after seeing your I'll have to continue to practice. Enjoy the day.
