Technique - Faux Gingham

As soon as I saw the Baby Prints stamp set in the Summer Mini Catalogue I knew I had to have it :o) I just think it's the sweetest thing with those little feet and hands.

This is one of the cards we completed at my Technique Classes in May. It showcases the Faux Gingham technique which you create using the Stripes Embossing Folder.

Ink up the folder in your chosen colour of ink and run your card stock through the Big Shot - I used Glossy card stock.

You can use a different colour ink for the next lot of stripes if you wish - remember to clean the Embossing Folder before inking it up again :o) Or just use the same colour again as I have done here.

Ink up the Folder a second time and position the card stock back inside - after having given it a quarter turn. Run it back through the Big Shot - and your done :o)

Stamp Sets : Baby Prints
Card Stock : Whisper White / Bashful Blue / White Glossy
Ink : Bashful Blue
Tools : Stripes Embossing Folder / Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
