Double Embossing

Here is another fun technique that I found online called Double Embossing.




There are a few different video’s online but the one that I like can be found here by Nilda Rockenbach. I had to make a few changes to the sandwich to emboss the cardstock with the embossing folder. The way Nilda describes it, it would not run through my cuttlebug machine.

Emboss cardstock with folder:

A plate
Chipboard shim
Folder with cardstock to be embossed
2 piece chipboard frame
C plate



Emboss the nestabilities frame:

A plate
Chipboard shim
B plate
Tan mat
Nestabilitites die
Chipboard shim
B plate



The final image shows a clear and deep impression from the nestabilitis die. If you don’t want such a deep impression, like the snowman card above, then do not use the bottom shim of shipboard.
