New Technique

I'm not sure of the name of this technique but for this tutorial I will call it ink debossing.

Ink up the raised bumps of the square lattice embossing folder with the Whisper White craft ink pad.
Place circles on the inked side of the folder.
Carefully close the folder.Run the folder through the Big Shot.

Carefully remove the circles without smudging them on the ink left over on the folder and VOILA! It's inked and debossed!

TIP: This works well on darker colored cardstocks. I tried this using the perfect polka dots folder and the So Saffron cardstock but it didnt' show up well.
