Mona is today’s challenge hostess. She asked us to use the Double Embossing Technique.  That’s not an easy technique for me, just because it is geared towards CAS cards. Those are absolutely NOT my strength. LOL

For my sample I embossed my background with Provocrafts Brocade Embossing Folder. The opening were blocked with cardboard pieces cut with a Label 13 Nestabilities die. The snowman from Warm Winter Wishes was stamped in the “un-embossed” center with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and was colored with Copic Markers (R35, R37, R59, R39, G82, G94, G99, BG0000, E23, E25, E27, YR 21, YR23, YR24).  I chose the colors for last weeks color challenge on Splitcoaststampers.

The outside of the layer was masked and the center sponged with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The same ink was used to stamp snowflakes from Warm Winter wishes around the snowman.

Stardust Stickles was added to the snow on the ground and the extra snow on the snowman and its button were coated with Glossy Accents. A frame was cut and embossed out of Artichocke paper with Label 13 Nestabilities dies.  The stamped layer was stitched to a slightly bigger Cherry Cobbler cardstock piece and the frame was attached over the image with dimensionals.

A sentiment from a soon to be released Sentimental Christmas stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink over a piece of cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with a die from the new Twisted Metal Tags & Accent die pack. The panel was sponged with Antique Linen and snowflakes were stamped over it in the same colors.

A strip of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the Snowflake Borderabilities dies. The snowflakes from that border were sponged with Vintage photo Distress ink and adhered to the card base with dimensionals.  They were topped with Want2Scrap Rhinestones.

A bow was tied out of May Arts Organdy Ribbon, topped with a Recollections Rhinestone brad and adhered under the sentiment panel. Last everything was adhered to the card base, a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.
