flower is an old SB "Aster  Flower Topper" also frantage..
main shape by Cherry Lynn "Mini Pearl Coved Rectangle doily  mega die.. embossed with Couture Creations  "Poetry" embossing folder    oyster stamps

double embossing

hi everyone,
welcome new and old followers, still to hot for me, don't know about you.

Wanted to have a go at this technique for a while, double embossing using nesties, found this old tutorial  here that helped,   if you care to have ago,
also made my own Frantage  by using  "Stampendous  White chunky  embossing enamel"  & mixed in my own.

this is the card, will be doing more like this as I really like the effect of the embossing and frantage.

I used spellbinders labels 13 to cut a aperture from the cardboard, think it fits  well on this lovely embossing folder by couture creations "Extra Loren" 5x7 folder here at  oyster stamps
the link above will show you how to do this technique.
