Creating Texture And Pattern Using A Bone Folder Tool

Not only is your embossing folder really useful for scoring and making cards, burnishing paper and elements in mixed media, but you can also create some stunning effects. Take a look at how I created this stunning card with a really simple but effective pattern using my bone folder.

  • Step 1

    Grab your bone folder, a metal ruler, smooth white cardstock and some inks.

  • Step 2

    Use your bone folder and metal ruler to score lines horizontally and vertically across a piece of white cardstock. I just spaced the lines evenly to create a grid effect.

  • Step 3

    Once you have scored the lines, ink the bottom edge of your card using 1 colour of VersaFine Clair ink and a dauber.

  • Step 4

    Use a second colour of VersaFine Clair ink and a dauber and blend the second colour at the top of your cardstock piece. Blend over the first colour a bit to make sure your blending is seamless.

  • Step 5

    Mix a small amount of All-Purpose ink Champagne Mist into a spray bottle with some water and shake well. Lightly mist over the inked piece to give a beautiful shimmery effect.

Use a border strip, some cut out flowers and elements to create a beautiful card for a loved one.
