Embossing is the easy way to create texture in papercrafts. But, did you know you can layer different embossing powders on the same paper? Double embossing is simple, fun and you only need to understand embossing basics to achieve this cool effect.
Take a piece of glossy cardstock and rub with the embossing buddy to avoid the static of the paper. Ink glossy paper using Versamark. Press the inkpad directly over the card stock to cover the whole surface. Cover the inked surface with Candy Green Embossing Powder and melt with the heat tool. You may need a second layer of embossing to create a uniform look.
Ink background stamp with Versamark. Stamp background over the embossed piece. For larger stamps, I preferred to stamp in opposite way and press the paper with my hands over the stamps.
Cover the stamped image with White Embossing Powder and melt with the heat tool. Tadaaa, the background is complete!
Die cut several “believe” dies from white cardstock. Use On Point Glue to stack the dies and create a raised effect. Create the base and layer for your card and assemble all the pieces using Tear it! Tape.
