Default Can I get a Letterpress effect?

Looking for ways to get a Letterpress effect on cardstock. I know I am crazy, but DD loves the look for her wedding invitations and I am looking for tutorials. I have a Cuttlebug and a Vagabond. I am not going to do the letters, just the decorations on the cardstock.

Couple of tutorials you might find useful:

Faux Letterpress with M-Bossabilities™ Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers
Letterpress with Impressabilities™ Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

When inking up an embossing folder (as in the first of those tutorials) I’ve found I have the best results if I use a brayer to add the ink.

HTH!

Like Joanne mentioned, embossing folders (of all kinds) and ink do amazing things.
This is one of my favorite videos on embossing folder techniques, because she covers just about everything plus the kitchen sink.
