Double Embossing Challenge at ABC Challenges


After taking last week off we are back in swing with a new challenge this week at 'ABC' Challenges.  The challenge this week is technique based - we want to see your Beautiful Cards made with two types of embossing (Doubly Embossed).

Adding texture through embossing is a great technique to use.   We thought it would be fun to challenge you a bit and ask you to use both on your cards this week.  What we would really like to see is your cards using both dry (texture) and wet (stamped and heat set) embossing.  But if that doesn't work for you then please use two different types of dry embossing patterns on your card.  We'll be happy with that as well. 
For my card I used dry embossing - a Tim Holtz folder - and used Frantage powder as a bit of a cheat but oh boy that stuff can be tricky!  Every time I snuck up on it with my heat gun it all blew away!  In the end I used an embossing pen to put dots on the tree for the powder to stick to.

Come on over to ABC Challenges, see what the rest of the Design Team created, and enter our fun challenge!
