Technique Tuesday: Stamping with Embossing Folders

Today's technique is Stamping with Embossing Folders.  I used this card a week ago for a color combo, but I thought I would share my technique too.  All you have to do is ink one side of the embossing folder with your color of choice.  Then place the paper in the folder.
I like to use a brayer to press the inked side of the folder down.  I roll the brayer both directions to get a clean transfer of ink.  Then pull the paper out and cut it to the size you want.  I love the way the non-traditional colors look for the wood grain effect.
