Challenge- Throwback Thursday #295- MCT Sports Card

Good Sunday everyone,
I decided to make a card for My Creative Time's sport card challenge. I have this really neat Cuttlebug embossing folder that has a baseball theme. I decided to try a technique where you ink the embossing folder and then emboss with it. I like the way it turned out, but I think this technique is better suited for a simple design folder with one image like Devine Swirls or Dots that will call for only one color to be applied. It was a bit challenging to ink different and often small areas with different color inks and not get the wrong color on the wrong spot. This card will come in handy during our next baseball season.

I had this technique idea sitting in the back of my head...and I couldn't remember from where. Then when I got a sweet compliment of this card from Trell over at Polka Dots, Paint & Cake Batter, it dawned on me that's where I had recently seen the technique. He did a cute card where he inked the embossing folder, then embossed with it. So thanks Trell, for the inspiration.
