SSSD April Technique

This one has lots of directions you can go with all the different embossing folders available. Here is what you need to get started. Embossing folders, card stock and whatever machine you use for this.

Take the first embossing folder and your card stock. Just stick in about 2 1/4 " of the card stock in your folder. We will be creating a center blank area for a sentiment. After you get going this could be higher or lower or even wider. It will be up to you.

Next put the bottom 2 1/4" into a second folder and emboss. 

Here are my two designs with the center blank area. 

Turn it over to the back side and score along the line of your embossed designs.

 Here is what you will have when you turn it back over to the front. 

For my card I decided to sponge some ink on the top design and I added 2 embossed butterflies.
