If you have come from Melissa's blog, you are right on track. This is a big ol' circle hop. When you get back from where you started, you have seen all the great creations.
Here I have used a brayer and ink to create a light color in the indented section (yes I am sure there is technical term for the indention, but it eludes me at the moment).
I inked the brayer, remember to roll your brayer across the ink and not back and forth, so that the brayer is completely covered in ink.
I rolled the inked brayer over the embossing folder on one side. I placed the White Daisy card stock (3 3/4" x 5") on the un-inked side and closed the embossing folder. Be careful not to move the paper.
Using my Cuttlebug, I created the appropriate sandwich and ran it through the embossing machine. You see in the example, the Juniper ink lightly covered the indented area.
A Juniper card base (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") with a White Daisy piece 1/8" smaller (4 1/8" x 5 3/8") is the mat for the Black cardstock (4" x 5 1/4") piece was the final mat for the inked/embossed piece. I did pop up the embossed section using 3D foam tape.
The Cricut frame is embellished with a little Color Ready Bias Ribbon and Black opaques from my stash. Since I can never have enough birthday cards, I used a birthday sentiment. Or in my second card, you can use the clear opaques.
Now off you go to Sheila's blog to see what embossing beauty she has in store for us - BUT STOP, please leave a little love - I love your comments.
