Double Embossed Christmas


Some cards are just impossible to photograph.  You either loose the detail or the colour.  This card was one of those until I got out the black backgrounds.  So here it is in all it's white purity.

I began by placing my dies from Simon Says and Lawn Fawn onto my cardstock and ran it through my Cuttlebug with a rubber mat under that.  What the rubber mat is designed to do is to let you emboss with a die and not cut through your paper.  I made sure to leave an area plain so I could stamp my sentiment from PTI and embossed it with silver.   That was the first embossing.
I then took out my embossing folder from Cuttlebug, place my the cardstock that was embossed with the snowflakes into it and embossed it again.  You can see how it added the circles and lines onto the paper.  I think it looks pretty cool.  Lastly, I did some scoring and then die-cut the snowflake and covered it with glitter and added a jewel to the center.

Adding my card to these challenges:
