Other Supplies: PVA Glue, Distress Inks (Fired Brick & Walnut Stain), Tim Holtz stamp sets
- Using the Brickwork embossing folder, emboss the pattern on light gray cardstock. Spray the cardstock with water before embossing to loosen the fibers. This will create an even emboss.
- Use soluble dye inks with a Sizzix blending tool to color the front of the embossed brick pattern. The ink should catch the front of the raised pattern and leave the embossed area uncolored as shown below.
- Fold an A4 sheet of cream cardstock in half and use a trimmer to cut to your preferred size.
- Using walnut stain ink, blend the corners of the folded cream cardstock to give an aged look.
- Using the same ink, apply to a large stamp and stamp over the front of the card. I used an architectural style stamp.
- Cut out a smaller rectangle of dark gray cardstock and glue to the front of your inked card as shown below.
- Stick the embossed brick element in front using Sizzix Foam Tape to add dimension. Stick this element at an angle.
- Using black stamping ink, stamp the letters on a small rectangle of medium gray card. Cut a similar size of cream card (adding walnut stain to give an aged look) and layer these up as shown in the picture.
