Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:
Since we are going to create an ombre effect on our layout, divide the folder into three sections and stamp three different inks on it.
Get your first ink, and start filling the upper portion of the folder as seen below. As for me, I decided to use my VersaFine ink since I love its dark pigment.
Then for the second and third parts, pat it again with a generous amount. I used watercolor inks (Warm Lipstick and Spun Sugar) for the next two portions as I would like to experiment on how the colors blend with the pigment ink.
Get your ink applicator and dab it gently on your folder, taking away any unnatural lines, as seen below.
If you feel like the watercolor inks are a bit lighter, you can spray a bit of water on there and add some more of the watercolor inks as needed.
Get your paper and stick it in your folder. You can now press it on to your die cut machine.
Isn't that gorgeous? You now embossed the ink to the paper!
Now let's turn it into a card! Tear off the sides of the paper to create a scruffy look which will serve as the background for your card.
Use pop up dots to stick your sentiment or image. It is also great for giving your design an elevated look!
Get a glue tape and adhere your lovely paper background to your card stock.
As you can see, I chose a black card stock to balance the busy elements of my script background.
