A fun and quick technique to try.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Today I have a quick technique I would like to share with you…

I call it “Double Dry Emboss”.

I got the inspiration for this technique from seeing so many beautiful cards where the card stock was dry embossed and then the raised areas of the emboss were inked with a contrasting color.

So, I thought what about doing it twice? That’s right…emboss, ink, then emboss again and ink again. Sound like fun? It is! 🙂

Quick Double Emboss Tutorial

Step #1: Dry emboss card stock.

Step #2: Sweep ink across the raised area of the embossed cardstock.

Step #3: Inking is complete.

Step #4: Turning the card stock 90°, place in the embossing folder.

Step #5: Second pressing finished with the embossing folder.

Step #6: Ink again as before with Step #2, across the new embossed raised area.

There you have… the Double Emboss. Give it a try & tell me what you think. 🙂
