Double Embossing Tutorial

Today I have a tutorial for you on Double Embossing. If you look closely at the bottom of my card you will see that I have embossed the bottom half using two Label 4 nesties to create an embossed focal point.
I also paper pieced the dress forms. You can check out my last tutorial on Paper Piecing!

1. Using the big shot, open to Tab 1 on the platform.
2. Lay down a plate.
3. Next place a piece of chipboard or cardboard.
4. Place your No Shims Embossing mat over the chipboard.
5. The next layer is your cardstock. I used a heavy weight cardstock.

6. Place your die or dies (cutting side down). Yes, I said down. It will not cut through your paper because of the No Shims Embossing Mat.
7. Place the second plate over the dies and run through your Big Shot. Picture above shows the results.

8. I stamped my sentiment and layered it unto red cardstock, cut with the Label 4 nestie. I also added some bling.
9. Paper pieced the dress form from The Touch of Elegance Stamp set, using Kaisercraft Shaken Not Stirred dp.

10. Added a bit of lace and narrow silk ribbon.

Above is the finished product!
