Mistake Fixed! Inked Embossing Folder Technique, One Color

I inked the wrong side of the embossing folder on my first attempt to do a double inking technique, so decided to make a single inked embossing folder card insteadl Hey, why waste the card stock when it’s so easy to do this technique.
I used Couture Creations Magical embossing folder and Hero Arts Charcoal ink, then rubbed the ink pad gently over the top of the embossed card stock. I used a water brush and dabbed it into my gray ink to add ink on places that needed more ink. I used Canson XL watercolor paper cut to 4″ by 5 1/4″ and the sentiment came from a Stampin’ Up set called Another Thank You. The card stock I used was a deep gray color from Gina K. and it came from her neutral collection. The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4″ . I used a black layer that was 5 3/8 x 4 1/8″ and I adhered it with ATG tape to a black fun foam layer, then tear taped it to the card base.
The sentiment I put on a strip of the same Canson XL paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink that I added clear embossing powder over it and heat set it.  I ran the edges of the sentiment on the gray ink pad, then adhered it to the front of the card with ATG tape.
I cut four 1/4″ strips and put them on either side of my sentiment on the front of the card. I stamped the back with the Made for you by Sandy Parker stamp.
I used peg stamps http://www.pegstamps.com, the grass sprigs and a leaf from the Autumn Glory set with the same gray ink to decorate the envelope.
