Cryogen White meets 3D embossed inking

I know that is a heck of a title, but until I come up with a name for this technique, it will have to do!

As most of you know, Cryogen White is my all time favorite cardstock, I love the glittery beauty of it, how strong and how absorbent it is. This cardstock with handle anything you throw at it, embossing, ink, paint, distressing etc..

I got some new 3D embossing folders from spellbinders and wanted to bring out the beautiful design that they have,so I created this card.

Isnt it lovely with all that distressed color!And just think , all that color started as a plain sheet of Cryogen white cardstock!

Here is how I did it:

Run Cryogen White cardstock through embossing machine.

Now take a Staz-on ink pad and run it over the raised areas. The Staz-on ink will stick to the embossing powder.

Cut two different sizes of dies to match the raised area. I used the amazing Grandee Felt paperline.
