Instructions on how to make your own embossed paper:
1. Lay four or five sheets of Kleenex tissue inside of your chosen 3D Embossing folder. I am using Labels 34 Medallion! The more sheets you use, the thicker the paper will be. 
2. Spray Memento LuLu Lavender Fireworks ink all over the tissue surface as shown. The ink washes off when you are finished.
3. Spray Memento Summer Sky Fireworks ink in various spots on the tissue surface as shown. 
4. Close the lid onto the folder and emboss using the Raspberry and Pink plates in your Grand Calibur®. Leave the tissue inside the folder, place a few books on top, and allow it to dry.
 5. Remove the paper from the embossing folder once dry, then trim to fit your card. Decorate as desired.

Project Recipe:

Paper: Kleenex Tissue, Bazzill Basics Paper® White, and Purple Cardstock
Inks: Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts Memento Grape Jelly ink pad, Fireworks Sprays: LuLu Lavender and Summer Sky
