Gingham with the Big Shot


     I just HAD to try this awesome technique using the Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I love this look of gingham and in Whisper White and Baja Breeze, it’s simply gorgeous! 

     Here’s how I accomplished this look:

  1. Using the brayer, ink up one side of the Stripes embossing folder. 
  2. Sandwich in your card stock and run it through the Big Shot like normal.
  3. Again, ink up the same side of the Stripes embossing folder.
  4. This time, turn your card stock 90 degrees and run it through the Big Shot again.

See?  So simple…I bet you’ll have to give it a try (if you haven’t already).

     I ended up putting a birthday sentiment on this card and gave it to my sister-in-law for her birthday.  Wouldn’t it make a lovely baby card?  Hmmm…

     Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give this gingham look a try.
