EZ with CZ: Simple Brayer + Embossed Background

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cathy Zielske in our monthly installment of EZ with CZ where we provide inspiration for crafters of all skill sets to try! Be sure to watch the video for more details and enjoy!

Hey friends! It’s Cathy Z. here with another installment of EZ with CZ! Today’s card features a fun way to add a colorful background to your card projects using some Distress Ink, a gel press and a brayer. While that might seem complicated, it’s really quite fast and fun!

I am really new to both brayers and gel presses and so I’m trying to learn more about them as I go. The upshot? It’s a cool way to add color to your card panels. Plus, I added some fun texture with one of the Simon Says Stamp 3D Embossing folders, which are also easy to use and add fun texture to an otherwise simple card design.

Here is my video showing you how I created my card project today.

Try your hand at this technique today! You really will get a different look every time. Also, don’t be afraid to cut your die cuts apart to get the perfect greeting for your cards.
