This month our challenge is: use an embossing folder. I bought this one on purpose, as I had none, but you can use any you have.
You need an iron without steam, wax paper an embossing folder and Dye inks, like I've used Distress inks: Candied apple, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon and Wilted Violet.
I cut the wax paper to the size of my card panel, placed it into the embossing folder and passed it through the diecutting machine as usual.
To transfer the "print" I put the wax paper in between two cardpanels
and then into a carrier sheet, and then ironed it. If you're lucky and your embossing folder is a bit bolder in it's print, you might see a shine on your panels.
But once you start to inkblend you will really see the pattern appear, it's quite cool.
For my Hoorray in Dutch Hoera, I've used the dieset from Carlijn Design.
Rounded the corners of my inkblended panel and mounted it with foamtape before adding it to the cardbase.
Mounted the black shadow with foamtape also and I;ve used liquid glue on the white letters.
