Count Your Blessings Embossing Technique

White ink on Kraft card stock is one of my favorite looks for a card.  It’s warm and inviting.  This look can become shabby, primitive or elegant.   One of my favorite designers, Becca Feeken, shared this card using Spellbinders products while thinking about the victims of hurricane Sandy.  And it is always appropriate to Count Your Blessings anyway.

Becca described how she made this card,  “I reached for one of the embossing folders –Spellbinders™ Ornamental Iron; once embossed I swiped across the top with a Colorbox White Pigment ink pad – I really liked the subtle look that give while bumping up the look of the embossing.  I crafted a cross piece using Spellbinders™ Floral Doily Accents and finished off with another Die D-Lite – Spellbinders™ Frame One.”

I admit, I agree with Becca when she says “I love using embossing folders!!   I should probably use them more often.  I spend way to much time trying to find just the right piece of design paper and when you use an embossing folder, it’s so easy to customize and save the time lost hunting the right paper :-)”

What do you like about embossing folders?  What is your favorite “add-on” technique?
