Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. If you wondered how to take your beautiful Alcohol Ink Background a step further, then I just have a wonderful creative technique for you. I made a Note Holder with the Alcohol Ink Background and also used the new Lavender Love Collection from Couture Creations.
Step by Step Instructions: My video tutorial below will show you how to use the Embossing Technique with your Alcohol Ink Background to let it stand out even more.

I found the inspiration from Tiffany Solorio. I first trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 4 1/2″ x 11″ and score it at 5 1/2″ to create the note holder base. For the stand I trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 4″ x 4 1/2″ and score it at the 4″ side at 1/2″ and 2″. I then turned it and score it again at 1/2″. Fold it in half, then fold 1/2″ flaps back (looks like a “w”) and adhere the stand along the inside edges of the tent (middle fold is up).
I then trimmed the Alcohol Ink Background to 4″ x 5″. I used Plum, Verdant and Apple Golden Age Alcohol Ink to create the background. Follow my video tutorial above where I show you how to use the Embossing Technique on your Alcohol Ink Background. Video Link.
For the Note Pocket a trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 5 7/8″ x 3″ and score it at the 5 7/8″ side at 1/2″ and 7/8″ turned it and score it again at 1/2″ and 7/8″.
On the 3″ side I scored it once at 1/2″ and 7/8″. I trimmed the Alcohol Ink Background to 2″ x 3 7/8″ and adhered it onto the back of the note holder.
I then trimmed Jungle Cardstock to 3″ x 4″ and adhered it onto the front of the note holder. I die-cut Royal Midnight and Jungle Cardstock with the Lavender Love Garden Frame Die and adhered it onto the front and back of the note holder using 3D foam dots and All Purpose Art Glue. I then die-cut Mirror Board Cardstock with the Lavender Love Garden Frame Dies and adhere it onto the front of the note holder using 3D foam dots to finish.
