Distressed embossing


A simple Christmas card using part of an 8 x 8 Embossalicious embossing folder run through my eBosser, having first inked the inside of the folder with fired brick distress ink. The piece of white card was from my offcuts box. This was then mounted on to a deckle edged red card blank, with a sentiment added.

I chose this embossing folder for Atalantic hearts sketch 20:
