Brayer it UP!

My dear friend Patty came by last week to stamp some Thank You cards.  Her loving husband of 47 years went home to be with Jesus on the 25th of February.  This man was literally a light every time you were in his presence.  You visit him in the hospital and he had a joke for you.  You visit him at home knowing he was in pain and he was endearing...a wonderful man who will be missed indeed!

Patty and I stamped 25 cards for her to send out and I was able to create a bundle myself to send to those of you who have recently placed an online order. 
I try hard to keep up with everyone...you better let me know if I missed you. :-) 
I want you to know how much I appreciate your business. 

Patty's were a little different then mine as she
used the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder
(see model below) 
Once you slide your cardstock through the embossing folder and Big Shot then you take your Brayer and ink that baby up with your Classic Ink. 
Roll the Brayer over your cardstock and the raised edge will receive the ink leaving the rest of the cardstock without ink. 
It makes the embossing really stand out!
I had Patty be my model because she had such pretty fingernails.  :-)
Thanks, Patty! 
I used the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder and got a bit of the ink on the inside of my cardstock. 
No worries...I spritzed some Silver Foil Smoch Spritz on the card to give it more of a "vintage" look and I loved the outcome. 
Mistakes NEVER happen in stamping!  :-)
You can find the Brayer in my online store...it looks like this:
