Faux Letterpress Technique

A quick post today - I wanted to share a couple cards I made using the Faux Letterpress Technique.  I am taking an onlien class - Inspiration Showcase with Jennifer McGuire.  I am learning so much - and will take another class sometime like this - I already have 80 some pages of printed material from the class with beautiful examples. 

With this technique you ink of one side of your embossing folder and run it through your machine.  Clean your embossing folder.  Ink the other side and run it through the machine.  You could just do one piece of the embossed paper on a card but I chose on these two cards to cut the pieces and then was able to make two cards.  I thought they turned out fallish looking with the leaves and goldish ink.  This sentiment from Hero Arts has become a favorite for cards for Operation Write Home - sometimes it is not a special occasion - you just want to say Hello. 

Thanks for stopping by.
