Double embossed Flourishes


Another busy day for me ahead - need to do a bit of yard work and then some cleaning in the house but I decided to make a card first :)

I did this for this weeks Timeless Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes which is also a release challenge - the prize is the entire release!!!!

The challenge this time was to use the double embossing technique - check it out here -

I didnot have the greatest luch with my double embossing - took me a couple tries and the effect is still not as pronounced as I wanted. I think using the patterned paper muted the effect a bit. I used a small dots texture folder but I swiped ink over the folder before I embossed so the dots would show up better.

I then cut a frame for the main image too and added some gold viva decor pen dots to enhance the frame.

I stamped/embossed the main image with white embossing powder and then embossed Merry Christmas in gold - it didn't show too well so I sponged some red ink on the corner (and all the corners) and it shows a bit better.

All for now - some chores to do and then maybe some more stmaping time before nap and work....

Take Care
