SSSD-Sept. Technique-Double Embossing.

This is a fun, fast and easy technique.Here is what you will need. Embossing folders, Cuttlebug or machine of choice, ink pads, card stock and sponges or daubers.

First thing you do is put your card stock in and embossing folder and run it through your machine of choice.

     Now lightly sponge a light color over the raised areas. You want most of the ink on the raised design.

So far so good. Easy right!!. Now stick your piece back into a different embossing folder. Inked side up. Remember the front of the folder is the one with the writing on it. Run it through your machine 3 or 4 times. This will flatten the first design while still embossing the new design. Take it out and sponge lightly with a darker color.


                                             Here are 3 that I did with different folders.

                                                 And my card. Hope you enjoy this.

Love the way this looks! What a great idea to color each embossed images in different colors so they can be distinguished from one another. Beautiful card! TFS!
