Double Embossing ~ Why only emboss it once, when you can emboss twice?

I'll let you in on a little secret today!  Even though my cards look like I may have fussed quite a bit, I really prefer ideas that don't take me very long. . .ones that don't require me to make too much of a mess . . . but when I'm finished, they look stellar!  The card I'm sharing today was one done during my Big Shot Class last month!  I really do enjoy designing cards for Big Shot Class because. . . well, first. . . we use the Big Shot . . . a lot. . . and second . . . they require me to do a bit more fussing, which I don't do that often!  I think that you'll agree that the fussing was worth it!

 

Double Embossed Card

Have you ever double embossed?  It required making a template from chipboard for both the embossing folders used.  I'm not going to bother trying to give you instructions, but rather I hope to do a video in the next few weeks, which will be much simpler to follow!

Here's a close up of the finished double embossed area.
