Hello!  The fourth Saturday of the month means it’s Stash Challenge time at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – which means we’re going to be using products and/or techniques that most crafters are likely to already have in their crafting repertoire.  This week we’re doing double embossing – combining both dry embossing and heat embossing on the same card.

My card ended up taking on a life of its own, but I’m mostly pleased with the way it turned out.  I decided to go with a snowflake theme.  I ran the white cardstock through an embossing folder with a snowflake design.  Then I swiped my Versamark ink pad over the embossed design, sprinkled it with embossing powder, and heat embossed it.  I noticed that some ink and embossing powder got in places that weren’t raised.  I didn’t want to waste the materials and effort, so I added some additional random heat embossing to the edges to kind of distress the panel.  Punched corners and pearls finish off the card.

We’d love to see what you can do with double embossing!  Link your card to the 52{C}CT site by 1:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, January 31.  Thanks for stopping by today!
