Double Embossed Enamel
by Cindy Elam
Create a unique background by dry and heat embossing with embossing folders
- White cardstock
- Big Shot or other die cutting machine
- Two embossing folders, one should be a simple design
- Embossing Buddy
- Embossing ink
- Heat tool
- Colored embossing powder
Tap embossing ink all over the side of the folder with the recessed image, inking it thoroughly.
Try not to press too hard (you don’t want ink in the recesses).
Rub Embossing Buddy over your white cardstock, and carefully place into embossing folder with “buddied” side facing inked side of folder. Emboss with Big Shot.
Cover inked, embossed cardstock with embossing powder.
Tap off excess powder.
A tiny paint brush works for removing Embossing Powder from areas you don’t want embossed.
Heat until shiny with Heat Tool.
Place embossed image into second folder and emboss again in Big Shot.
Your double embossed enamel background is done.
Finish your card.
