Double Embossing

February 19, 2018

I saw a video by the very talented BJ Peters which demonstrated how to create double embossing with your embossing folders which I found very interesting.  The video demonstrates how to add Versamark ink to your embossing folder, run it through the Big Shot and then add embossing powder to the image and heat set it.  She used the floral folder from the Petal Pair Embossing Folders.  So I just had to give it a try.  Let me say that I think that I need to practice this technique a bit more to produce a really good result but I will share with you the cards I have created.

I coloured Whisper White 1/4″ Organza Ribbon using the dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blend.  I wrapped the ribbon across the top left and the bottom right hand corners of Whisper White card which I had embossed using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder.  I did tie a knot in the section of the ribbon I attached across the top left hand corner.  The embossed card is attached to Rich Razzleberry card and then scored and folded Thick Whisper White.  I cut a circle from Whisper White card and a scalloped circle from Rich Razzleberry card using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies.  The Whisper White card is attached to the Rich Razzleberry card and then the card front.  To create my focal image I used the same Petal Pair Embossing Folder and added the Versamark ink.   I sprinkled the folder with Gold Embossing Powder and then heat set it.  This technique produces a stunning image, but you do need to be careful that you are not smudging the Versamark.  Once the image was heat set I used Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends to colour in the image before cutting out a small part of the image to use on my card front.   The floral image is attached to the centre of the Whisper White circle.

I kept the inside of the card simple by punching a piece of Rich Razzleberry card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.  The punched piece is attached behind one long edge of a strip of Whisper White card embossed using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder before attaching to the inside of the card.

I was pretty happy with this first attempt at this Double Embossing technique, what do you think?

Bye for now,

    It was kind of a fiddle but I think worth it in the end.
