Emboss It Twice!!!

Happy Monday Yall! This week at The Cuttlebug Spot, we have a fun challenge lined up. It is called 'Emboss It Twice.' Here is the link for you:

Here is my card for this week. I had to do a little staging with some of my Mom's beautiful dishes.

Here is a better view of the card. I used the Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge for my ice cream cone. I double embossed on the red cardstock. I used D'Vine Swirl first and then ran it through again using Swiss Dots.

I also added some cherry printed ribbon. I got it at Michaels in the $1 bin. The pink you see underneath the cherry ribbon is actually a cupcake liner. It is such an easy way to add pleats to your work without all the hassle. Talk about inexpensive too!!! I think 100 of these in a pack are less than $2!

Here is a close up of my ice cream cone. I used Argyle for the cone. I ran the top portion of the ice cream through using D'Vine Swirl. I then went over the swirls with Stickles. I also inked up my red cherry with Versamark and then sprinkled on red embossing powder. This really gives it a shiny, waxy texture that you would see on a real cherry.

Upclose of the ribbon and cupcake liner used to make pleats.

I got this stamp in the $1 bin at Michaels also. This view also shows my double embossing in the background a bit better.

So do come on over to The Cuttlebug Spot and join in on another fun challenge! I can't wait to see all of your creations!
Take care and have a beautiful day!
Pin It!

Aymee,
Your card are adorable and your layouts. The twice embossing is a very good idea. You come up with great ideas all the time. The cupcake liner with the cupcake, is another great idea! All of your layouts are cute also. Keep this awesome work coming!

I like the cone made with the argyle and ice cream made with the swirl folders. Gives it great dimension.
