Debossed Gracious Floral
by Trina Pham


Hello there.  Today I’m using the Gracious Floral embossing folder (EF) and a very simple debossing technique recently shared by Jennifer McGuire

Started by inking the raised side of the EF with white pigment ink.  I would have used silver metallic pigment ink, but my ink pad was dry.  Spritz a piece of blue cardstock with water next, then ran it through the die cutting machine in the EF.


The inked details get debossed into the cardstock, resulting in a reverse image.  For even more contrast/dimension, inked up a rubber brayer with blue dye ink and rolled it over the panel.  I would have stopped there but I tried covering up a mishap and ink blended around the edges with a dark blue dye ink. 😆  Heat embossed the sentiment from the Gracious Floral stamp set on white cardstock with Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  Assembled the card onto a white card base and added some clear Fairy Dewdroos to finish.


Easy-peasy.  Thank you for joining me today.  Have a wonderful week.





I have seen that Jennifer's video too, and want to try. Your card is just AMAZING and love the white!

This gives me some inspiration for a Christmas card using the poinsettia embossing folder I bought but never really used. I'll bet it will be great with this color scheme! The card is amazing. I watched Jennifer's video, too, and look forward to trying it! Thanks!

Stunning card Trina, I might just have to get that EF :)

You got awesome results with this technique with this beautiful embossing folder!

what a fabulous card I just love that colour and the embossing folder is so beautiful.


That is absolutely beautiful, Trina! I was drawn to the blue right away, and the debossing with the white ink just makes it spectacular. I must try that technique.

This card is so beautiful and elegant, Trina! What a great way to use this lovely embossing folder.

Gorgeous debossed floral, Trina! I saw Jennifer's video too but haven't gotten to that technique yet. You're really inspired me with this card!!
