this month each member of the taylored expressions baker's dozen team has featured a te embossing folder along with an embossing folder technique. my card uses the zig zag embossing folder along with an embossing folder stamping technique - i followed instructions from splitcoast stampers that can be found here.
to 'stamp' the zig zag pattern onto the dijon cardstock i applied distress paint to one side of the embossing folder & then lightly misted with water - not too much since i used te premium cardstock & not watercolor paper. then i carefully placed the cardstock onto the paint covered embossing folder, closed it up & applied a bit of pressure to transfer the paint onto the cardstock. after the paint dried i trimmed the panel down to size and assembled the paper pieced tree. note: be sure to clean off the embossing folder right away so that the paint doesn't dry on it.
