Embossing Folder Stamping

I couldn't wait to try Sandra's embossing folder technique after spotting it online yesterday.
Following her directions, I stamped directly on the inside top of the embossing folder 
before running it through my cuttlebug.
I used a musical notes background stamp from Judikins and tea dye distress ink.
It worked like a charm! Only the background had the stamped part.
The birds and swirls remained un-inked!
I think you end up with a mirror image of the stamp, but it's not very noticeable for this stamp.
I pretty much CASE'd her card except I used distress tea dye and spun sugar inks.
Had so much fun with it, I made two more slight variations.

I always love the look of embossing folders. Should use them more often.
