My next presentation used the Big Shot to do a technique called Double Embossing. Here are my samples.
This one uses the stamp sets Watercolour Winter and Greetings from the Season from the new Holiday Seasonal catalogue due out September 1st. Notice too the embossing folder I used – Lacy Brocade also from the same catalogue.
Another couple of new products used on this one too. Wild Wasabi stitched ribbon and Cherry cobbler Dazzlin’Details glitter glue. Stamp set is Pennant Parade.
And for other times of the year and occasions – the same technique done using Zoo Review stamp set. There is Dazzling Diamonds for snow at the feet of the penguin but it does not show up that well in the photo.
Now how to do this technique?
1. Emboss card with embossing folder. Use Big Shot multipurpose platform without tabs one and two. This saves your card from over embossing. You can do the whole card or leave part unembossed so as to stamp a greeting.
2.Using Designer Frames embossing folder of choice, emboss the frame onto chipboard and cut out around frame. This will be your shim. You may need two pieces together depending on chipboard thickness and your Big Shot calibration. It took me awhile to get the thickness of chipboard to a degree I was happy with.
3. Place designer frame in place over previously embossed image, making sure it is central. Place shim chipboard over top of designer frame. Place on Big Shot multipurpose platform using tabs one and two and NO lower cutting pad but a cutting pad on top. Run through Big Shot. Your card piece will be ready to decorate. A slight impression of the first folder can be seen but will be hidden when you add your stamped image.
4. Cut/punch card to size of frame and stamp image. Attach to inside of frame.
5. Add sentiment and ribbon and attach to folded card.
Hope you have fun trying out this technique! Let me know how you go!
