The House That Stamps Built: Presentation of the Week

It is my week for Pick of the Week at The House That Stamps Built.
  I am going to explain how to do double embossing for a fun textured look.
You will need two embossing folders, one with a mild pattern and one
with a bolder pattern.  An A2 card base, a 4 " by 5 1/4 " layer for embossing.
Other layers and stamps as desired.
Emboss milder pattern, I used Sizziz Tim Holtz wood grain.
Emboss bolder pattern, I used The Paper Studio,.

Enlarged so you can see the texture you get with two
embossing folders.

I then did some ink distressing, and used a Tim Holtz distresser on the edges.
I used Repeat Impression stamps: Cape Hatteras Light, Birthday Vertical,
Whelk Shell, and Random Dots.

Be sure to check out The House That Stamps Built blog
for a discount on the stamps that I used.
