I shared this card and video a couple of months ago, but thought I would share again today in case you  missed it.  (it’s one of my most popular videos!)  This is a fun and easy technique that gives dramatic results!  (but a little messy)

Let’s start with the video:

Using an ink pad, apply ink directly to embossing folder.  Make sure you are applying on the “raised” side that you want the ink to appear.  With the Woodlands folder, it is the side that says “Stampin’ Up!” on it.

Place card stock carefully inside the folder.  Make sure to not move it around.  Close folder and run through Big Shot like you normally do!

I like to start with the cardstock a little bigger than I need.  In this case, it was 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  After running through the Big Shot, I cut it down to the size I needed:  5″ x 3 3/4″.

To really bring out the highlights in the tree, I used my Black marker in the little grooves of the trees:
