This week at The Cuttlebug Spot we were asked to use double embossing on our project which is simply running your cardstock through the Cuttlebug using one folder and then a second time using a different folder for a multi patterned effect. The first pattern flattens slightly but is still visible, but you can also ink the first embossing and it will stand out much more. I used Swiss Dots and Birds and Swirls. The adorable die cut is another Cottage Cutz which is available exclusively from The Scrapping Cottage. I must say I've fallen in love with these dies. I cut the shape out in both white and gold foil cardstock for a bit of a shadow effect and popped them for dimension.
The sentiment is a fabric label I got in the clearance bin at J's. I thought it would be appropriate for either a wedding or anniversary. The border is a peel off and of course I added gold adhesive beads. The border punch is a new one from EK Success. This technique is so much fun that I hope you come and play along at The Cuttlebug Spot and be sure to stop by and see all of the lovely examples created by my Design Team sisters.
