I use embossing folders often when I'm making cards. Thanks to my friend Lynne who gave me a lovely Sizzix embossing folder recently. She suggested that it would work well with inks, so out came my inks and a brayer and I started to have a play! I'd not used inks before with embossed card, but it was really easy to get the hang of it. The backing for both these cards was made using the same embossing folder, with one inked on the reverse side. The circles were cut out with one of the scalloped Nestabilities and the 'flower' was cut out using a Memory Box 'Whimsy Circle' die.
