Clean + Simple Card: Using Ink with your Embossing Folders to create fun, interesting backgrounds

Hey friends! Today I'm sharing a clean + simple card I made using ink with my embossing folders to create that cool brick background. The ink paired with the embossed texture creates an extra layer of interest without a lot of extra noise or bulk. If you'd like to see how to execute this technique and take your embossing to the next level have a look HERE.

I love the clean, classic look of an embossed background, but adding a bit of ink like I did to the card on the right, added a layer of interest without any bulk and without a lot of extra noise. The fully inked background (on the left) might be a bit much to consider it "clean and simple" but I think the partial still keeps it within the boundaries of clean + simple, plus adds some extra interest to the design.

The Bumblebee card stock I used for the layer panel and the flower die cut is going to retire at the end of April, 2022. This color is part of the 2020-22 In-Color palette from Stampin' Up! The In-Colors only last two years so if you like this color, stock up now before the retirement list comes out next week! In-Colors are some of the first products to disappear when the retirement list is announced.

You can SHOP right HERE.
