E legant thank you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Garden Green Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Fresh Fig Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" from Garden Green Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 3" from Whisper White Cardstock
Lightly spray the Fresh Fig rectangle with water. This will help you get a deeper impression when you dry emboss it.
Insert the damp Fresh Fig rectangle into the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Use the line drawn on the front flap of the folder to help you line the cardstock up straight. Place the folder with the paper inside directly on your Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place a Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
VERY IMPORTANT: You are using only ONE Cutting Pad. If you try to use two, the sandwich will be too thick and you could damage the Big Shot.
Use a Heat Tool to quickly dry the embossed Fresh Fig rectangle.
If you haven't already done so (or need to re-ink the pad), squirt some Whisper White Craft Ink Refill onto the Uninked Pad and spread it around and lightly mush it into the pad.
Lay the dry embossed Fresh Fig rectangle on some Grid Paper on your work surface. Rub the open White Craft Ink Pad lightly across the raised surfaces of the embossed Fresh Fig rectangle until you have the coverage you want.
Tip: Be careful when working with Craft Ink as it will stain clothing.
