What to do with Linen Paper 

Tips to stamp and add color to Linen Paper.

In the video, I share many tips and techniques for using linen paper in your paper crafting. I share how to

  • Adding Color 
  • Silhouette 
  • Stamping 
  • Tied-Die 
  • Embossing

I will share each card in the coming week. This will make it easier to find specific techniques than all shoving in one post.  Today, I will share the simple way to emboss on linen paper. 

Emboss On Linen Paper 

Embossing on Line paper is just like embossing on card stock. The first thing is to remove the backing of the linen paper and adhere the linen to card stock. I like to stick to basic white thick, but regular card stock also works perfectly. The reason why I prefer thick for embossing with linen is that it gives a more profound imprint. 

After placing the Linen Paper on card stock, emboss with your favorite embossing folder just like you would with card stock. 
Today, I used the Blending Brush and Highland Heather ink to add color to these cards. For the portrait card, I used Wink Of Stella to add the glimmer, and it also bleeds the ink to add character to the card. 


  • Basic White 11 x 4 ¼ score at 5 ½ or 8 ½ x 5 ½ score at 4 ¼ card base 
  • Highland Heather 4 x 5 ¼, die-cut the 3 ¼ banners of the 3″ circle from this layer 
  • Basic Thick White 3 ¾ x 5. This is the piece to adhere to the linen and emboss. Die-cut the 2 ½ circles before embossing, place back the circle in the open and then emboss.
