1. Run a piece of 3” x 4” piece of Baja Breeze CS through the Big Shot using the Finial Press Embossing folder.

2. Open the Early Espresso Pad and ink, direct to paper, using a back and forth motion or in circular pattern. The key is GENTLY! Allow plenty of time to dry.

This is such a simple technique but will give your projects a visual depth and interest and will really pop them and wow the recipient. Try it with any of our embossing folders.
