Today I have a male themed card for you. A lot of people struggle making male cards. But they don't need to be hard. Especially with this technique I am going to share with you today using your embossing folders. Here is the card that I made.
This technique does the embossing and stamping on the card in one step. So easy.
All you do is stamp directly onto the embossing folder. To do this, open up the embossing folder and find the side where the pattern is indented. This will be the side where the pattern is raised when run through the big shot. Normally this is the side with the logo on it. Once you have selected the side you need, stamp your design. On this card, I used the leaves from the Sheltering Tree stamp set.I used three different colours - Old Olive, Peekaboo Peach and Rich Razzleberry. I have done this technique before with the same embossing folder, but used the vintage cars out of the Guy Greetings stamp set. Both of these make for great male cards.
Once your folder has been stamped on, carefully place your cardstock in as you normally would, then run it through the big shot. Your card stock will come out embossed and stamped. How cool is that! But what is even cooler is that your stamping looks like it is behind the raised image. So in this card it looks like you have stamped onto the card and then somehow embossed , or embossed and somehow stamped but not on the embossing. This technique is a lot of fun and will have people scratching their heads wondering how you did it.
