Brayer Class - Stampin' Up!'s Manhattan Flower Embossing Folder

This has to be one of my favorite embossing folders.  While the image is relatively simple, it is quite stunning and I am finding lots of ways to use it.  For this card, I showed everyone how to brayer the embossing folder directly with your ink and then place your cardstock inside and run through the Big Shot.  I am not sure how to describe which side of the embossing folder that you need to ink except to say it would be the "valley" side.  The "mountain" side would be the raised image side and the "valley" side is the one that drops down in the shape of the image.  Clear as mud?
One other hint on this card is to place a VERY small piece of double sidede temporary tape to the back side of the cardstock and place the cardstock on the "mountain" side of the embossing folder and then close the embossing folder.  This way you do not risk it moving around as you close the folder and cause the ink to smear.
I finished off the card with the Happy Birthday stamp from the Happiest Birthday Wishes hostess stamp set in Melon Mambo and Old Olive.
