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 card stock.
Step #3: Inking is complete.
Step #4: Turning the card stock 90°, place in embossing folder.
Step #5: Second pressing finished with 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. :)
