Get Rusty with Gloria

Hello everyone! Gloria here today sharing a fall-themed card.

I created a faux patina effect for this card. It is a fun way to get more use out of your folders! I used the Endless Embossing Folder from the All Occasions Collection.

Use a brayer to add ink to the embossing folder. I used a selection of fall colors of dye ink. Make sure you add ink to the inside of the folder, on the section containing the black Couture Creations logo. Place cream cardstock into the folder and emboss. Wash your folder to prevent staining. Use a heat tool to make sure the ink on the cardstock is totally dry.

Create a "patina" by using a foam or sponge ink applicator to ink over the raised areas of the embossed paper with green, blue, and dark brown ink, in that order. Allow to dry. You may use a heat tool to dry the ink if you wish.

Ink some of the raised areas with watermark or clear embossing ink. You only want to heat emboss a few areas to create a "rusted" look on your card. Emboss with metallic embossing powder. I created my own "rust" powder by combining several powders together. Trim the paper to size and use it to create a card.

I cut out the sentiment with the Rectangle Nesting Dies and Scallop Rectangle Nesting Dies and attached it to the card with Foam Mounting Tape.

Thanks for joining me today!
