Apply the Salvaged Patina Oxide to the DEBOSSED side of the Vintage Frame Embossing Folder.
TIP: If you like a distressed look, like me, don't ink right up to all the edges.
Spritz folder with water, then dab away the ink, from an area in the centre of the frame, as shown on this photo.
Lay the white card carefully, inside the folder, and run it through your embossing machine.
Dry off the ink thoroughly.

Use a white gel pen to add accents, and highlights, to your stamped floral image.
