Technique Thursday #33-2016

All month long we have used double embossing for our Technique Thursdays.  Here Sue creates a beauty of a card -

I used Hero Arts Designblock Everything Flower background stamp with Versamark ink and WOW!’s Metalline Red embossing powder which I heat set with my heat tool. Then I placed the panel in Cricut Cuttlebug’s Chicken Wire embossing folder, to achieve the double embossed criteria. This was the first time I had attempted this. I’m quite surprised by the very cool effect that the double embossing creates. The sentiment was put on a banner and popped up with dimensionals. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink’s Keep it Simple Thank You stamp set. - Sue

Here is a closeup of the detail

I love the unusual choice of chicken wire for the embossing folder Sue used. This technique really does look so great in person. 


  1. Lovely card, Sue. Denise, we were just talking about that embossing folder. What a clever application for it! Not a chicken in sight, but it works perfectly.

    1. You are right Kim, I love how the designers teach us to think outside the box.
