This post is for my new best friend, Adrienne, from Minnesota. She was wondering how — step-by-step please — I got that bear behind the trees on this Valentine card (bottom of page). And then, how did I remove/clean the bear from my Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Well, here is a real step-by-step of the process.
This is sometimes a little hard to get your head around, putting yourself inside the embossing folder: You want to stamp on the side of the folder that will not be pushed out or raised when running the folder through the Big Shot.
You’ll need these items:
- Bear Hugs stamp set
- Big Shot
- Big Shot Platform or older Multi-purpose Platform (this is what I use)
- 2 standard cutting pads
- Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
- SU! Classic Ink of your choice – I used Early Espresso
- card stock (my Very Vanilla piece is 4″ x 5-1/4″)
This is a really easy technique. You just have to trust. And sometimes it’s just plain old trial and error. Go ahead and try it for yourself now. You’ll like it. Actually you’ll wow yourself and you’ll love it. And you’ll really impress your friends and card recipients.
