Double Embossing FREE Tutorial

Did you see this card and wondered how I did it? 

  Get your Big Shot out and lets get Started!

I used the Perfect Polka Dot  and Framed Tulips embossing folders.  I added a little more embossing to create a wedding card at the end of this post.  

You will need 2 Pieces of chipboard.  1 x 4 and 2 x 4.  I used the white cardboard from the back of the Stampin Up! designer paper and just glued 2 of the same size pieces together

Close your Multipurpose platform

Put your paper into your embossing folder and place it on top of the closed platform.  this is the perfect polka dot folder.  

Place your chipboard on top of the embossing folder.  I used 2 x4

add ONE cutting plate and crank it through your Big Shot

It should look like this, only embossed where the chipboard was:

Now line the perfect polka dot section up with Framed Tulip embossing folder.  Be careful to make it straight

add your 1 x4 chipboard , then ONE cutting plate and crank through your Big Shot

It should look like this:

Now flip it to create a second line of embossed Tulips.  pay close attention to line the tulips up with your already embossed ones

add your 1 x4 chipboard , then ONE cutting plate and crank through your Big Shot

it should look like this: 

now repeat on the other side:  

you should have a piece of card stock that looks like this:  

I created a wedding card with mine.  It was so beautiful I went with white on white with pearls

Stamps:  Fabulous phrases
Paper: whisper white
Ink: sahara sand
Accessories:  Framed tulips, perfect polka dot embossing folder, modern label and punch pack, lots of pearls!

    Thanks so much for posting this tutorial! I figured it had to do with chipboard, like using the wooden things with the oval cut out, but didn't know how thick to make it or the dimensions. This is really great. Beautiful wedding card!

    Jill: You are so creative! I don't see how you can come up with a new card idea every single day!!! I struggle and always have to copy someone else's idea. And even copying, it takes me hours to make a card!!! Bravo! I love this white wedding card – may I copy it?!?! Love, Sue

    hi Jill thanks for this cool technique I will have to try your idea. I too have been doing double embossing but I only use the embossing folders alone, to make smaller frames and borders. I can't wait to try the technique with chip board to see the difference! Thanks for sharing the NEW and improved version!
