Stamp with an Embossing Folder Technique Wild Cats Card

Stamp with an Embossing Folder and expand your craft stash! In this video, I show how to use this technique and create a Wild Cats card!

The best thing about this technique is that you don’t need an embossing machine. All you need is your favorite embossing folder, ink, and some paper.

Use this embossing folder technique to create a large background like this card, or conversely, for smaller pieces that add a bit of flair to your project! It’s like bonus Designer Series Paper!

In this video, I show how to use the technique and create a card, and I then heat emboss my background.

A wonderful part of this technique is that you can also use this technique with your other color inks and cardstock to create different looks for your projects!

How to Stamp with an Embossing Folder:

If you are reading this in your email, click here to watch the YouTube video.

First, cut your cardstock:

  • Thick Very Vanilla
    • 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, scored at 4 1/4”
    • Scraps for tag and cheetah
  • Cajun Craze
    • 4” x 5 1/4”

Folder Stamp Technique:

  • Gently dab the VersaMark ink onto the raised part of your folder. This doesn’t need a lot of pressure as you apply the ink pad, but just a gentle tapping will work fine.
  • Insert the paper into the folder and carefully close the lid. Be careful to not shift the paper!
  • Apply pressure to the top of the folder with either a bone folder, a brayer, (or watch the video to see how I used the side of a flat closed ink pad). Hold the end of the folder to prevent the paper from shifting.
