Butterfly Embossed Card

Have you ever used your embossing folder with wax paper to create a batik looking background paper?  This is my first time trying this technique but I'm sure it won't be my last.  It was quite fun.  Trim a piece of wax paper a little larger than your embossing folder.  Scrunch up the wax paper wrinkling it.  Smooth it out again and run through the embossing folder.  Next put trimmed white cardstock on top and bottom of the embossed wax paper.  Last put this between a piece of folded plain copy paper and run your iron over it.  The fun part is adding ink to the ironed pieces with a large sponge dauber.  Inside the frame above you can see what the finished piece looks like.  I used the same embossing folder for the waxed resist as I did embossing the pink cardstock on the front of the card.  This opens up another world for your embossing folders.  Use embossing folders with patterns (instead of backgrounds) for best results.  This pink butterflies birthday card is joining the below challenges:
