Last week I had one of those.. hmm I wonder if this could work thoughts.. I thought I'd try and see what would happen if I embossed some cardstock first with an embossing folder and then with embossing powder. So I decided to give it a go.. and this was the result..
So I thought I'd share with you all here the very easy steps of how I did it.. :)
I first cut my kraft cardstock to my desired size, then ran it through one of my favourite embossing folders.
I run mine back and forwards through my machine, just to make sure I get a nice crisp clear raised image.
The next step is to gently swipe your embossing ink over the raised parts of your embossed design. I find it works best if you have your cardstock sitting on a flat hard surface like your desk.
Next step was to sprinkle with your embossing powder, shake off any excess powder, and then heat set it.
I then cut my double embossed design into strips.
The last thing I did was to ink them with various colours of distress ink.
They are then ready to add to your card, layout or project.
I hope you enjoyed my little tutorial, and would love to see if you have a go at using this technique.
I hope you have a wonderful day, and hope to see you back again soon :)
