Crayon Rubbed Embossing

Here is a card I made using Crayon Rubbed Embossing. Here's how to do the technique:
You can use the Embossing Folders without a Big Shot! Open the Embossing Folder and place a piece of white card stock on the side that the bumps stick up. Rub a white crayon (wax based like Crayola) on the card stock. Hold the card stock still and rub it all over a few times. Use good pressure and try to make sure the card stock does not move. Remove from the Embossing Folder. Get a brayer inked up (I used Basic Gray) and run across the card stock until it is completely covered. Then rub off the excess ink with a paper towel. The image on the Embossing Folder (that you rubbed over) will “pop” out because the crayon on that part of the paper resists the ink. You might also want to try another color of card stock or crayon, or a sponge instead of a brayer.

Happy Stamping!
