Mirror Embossing Technique

 


Technique Time -- today's technique I'm calling Mirror Embossing.  Basically it's running two sheets of card stock through the embossing machine at once and inking up the entire inside of the embossing folder two different ways ... the smooth side using the ink pad directly to the smooth side (logo side) of the embossing folder, and the other side is inked with a brayer.

Card measurements in inches
Highland Heather -- 5-1/2 x 8-1/2, 3 x 3
Basic White -- 4 x 5-1/4, (2) 3-3/4 x 5, 2-1/2 x 2-1/2, 1-1/4 x 2-1/2

Video instructions
The mirror technique is explained as well as a few inking comparisons for which techniques worked best for me.  Also included is a tip on stamping flowers onto the stems more accurately.
