How to Add Glitz with Embossing Folder

 Hello friends!

I have a fun share today. This time, I am using Embossing Folder as my main focus. I'd admit, using embossing folder is not always that easy, especially if it's geometric or abstract. However, that shouldn't stop us from making it look amazing, right?

This time, I tried to add some pizzazz to the embossing folder. To start, I prepped my paper with dry-embossing.

I then started spraying color mist. You can use Distress Ink spray, Distress Oxide Ink Spray... I used Altenew ink spray.

While it was still wet, I sprinkled glitter all over the center.  After a few hours, I shook off the excess glitter and I now have a very cool background with the embossing folder.

I added my focal point with this month's Card Kit (ephemera). This card is complete!

What a gorgeous glittery background! The emphemera looks lovely on the background you created with the ink sprays. Have not tried using glitter with ink sprays. Great results!
