Feeling Sentimental Double Embossing Card

This is one of the cards we made in my Big Shot Class last weekend, and it features two Sale-a-Bration freebie products: Feeling Sentimental stamps and the Vine Street embossing folder.

This card features the Double Embossing technique. I created two templates from Chipboard. One for the outside (embossed with the Vine Street folder) and one for the inside (embossed with the Designer Frames embossing folder). Of course, you need to do your stamping before the embossing, so I created a template to help pencil in the area that should be stamped. My sandwich for the Big Shot was Multipurpose Platform - Tab 2, embossing folder with card stock inside, Chipboard template, Cutting Plate. I ran it through twice... first with the Vine Street Folder, and then with the Designer Frame folder positioned over the un-embossed section from the first folder.

Stamps: Feeling Sentimental*
Card stock: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
Inks: Early Espresso
Other: Vine Street Textured Impression Folder, Designer Frame Textured Impression folder, Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

Honeycomb Secret Garden

One of my favourite (easy) techniques right now is stamping a large panel of card stock, then runnign it through the Big Shot in an embossing folder. It really takes a "plain" card and makes it special! For this card (from my March Simple Cards Class), I stamped the Whisper White panel with stamps from Secret Garden, then ran it though the Big Shot in the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder. I dressed it up with a doily, a pretty sentiment (from Vintage Verses--Free until March 22nd with a $60.00 order) and a flower and leaf stamped on scrap card stock and cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits. A little Certainly Celery Taffeta ribbon finishes this card off!

Stamps: Vintage Verses*, Secret Garden
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery
Card stock: Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Other: Large Pearl, Secret Garden Framelits, Doily, 2 1/2" Circle Punch, Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon, Honeycomb embossing folder
