Wax Paper Resist With Embossing Folders

I made the purple background for this card using a wax paper resist technique.  It’s a fun technique and is super easy to do.  You will need an iron, an ink pad, a die cutting/embossing machine (or a rolling pin), an embossing folder with an all-over pattern like the butterfly and flower pattern I used for this card.


Emboss the wax paper, then sandwich it between two sheets of glossy cardstock.  Put a sheet of copy paper over the top and iron with a hot iron (no steam).  Once that’s done ink the glossy paper and the pattern will appear.  By sandwiching the wax paper between the glossy card stock, you get two for one.  One piece will be the positive of the embossing folder and the other will be the negative.

After I made the resist background I cut it into suares  and mounted them in a grid pattern leaving 1/8” between the squares.  I made the flowers using the Wildflowers cutting die from Hot Off The Press.
