Embossed Gingham

One of my favorite new products is the Stripes embossing folder. I have used it for several cards as a striped background but my favorite way to use it is to make embossed gingham.

This is a Christmas card I posted earlied to show the new quilted satin ribbon. The gingham is made using Cherry Cobbler ink in one direction and Always Artichoke ink on the other direction.
