Grandma - fixer of all boo-boos

I'm back with another layout for MWL.

I wanted to use some images on embossing folders on the page but of course the cardstock is too big to fit through my 'Bond. So I decided to ink up the positive (image protruding) side of the folder and stamp it on the page. That's right, stamping with the embossing folder - this will open up all sorts of possibilities because I can place the images anywhere on the page.  Using the negative side will create a different look too.

I had to burnish the folder on the cardstock since it was textured. But the result of the texture makes for an irregular print which I liked.

These are the embossing folders I used:

657395 Textured Impressions Embossing Folders Curly Gate & Berry Splash Set - Berry Splash (A2 Large)

657490 Texture Fades Embossing Folders Valentine Background & Borders Set - Hearts (A2 Border)

I also added a few layers of the fringe-like edging below the photos using 657410 Floral Bead Edging
