Very Versailles - Technique: Embossing With Toilet Roll - Video Tutorial

I have a Technique Video to share with you today. This will show you how to emboss using Toilet Roll.

The same technique works for any type of soft tissue - for instance paper napkins, Kitchen Roll or Facial Tissue, like Kleenex.

The results you get with it are gorgeous. It will give a lovely soft texture with a beautiful deep embossing. You should get little or no cracking at all and it's something different to try without the need for extra special equipment.

I used the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. After embossing, I added a light colour using a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink. I wanted to give my card a little vintage feel.

I stamped the inside of the card to coordinate with the front.

You can use any embossing folder for this technique. The Toilet Tissue I used was 2-ply and I used 3 layers.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).
If you use 8½” x 11” as your standard sheet of card – follow the imperial measurements (inches).
