Double Letterpress
By:  Vickie Kertz, Artistic Guide

Finished Card Size:  4.25 x 5.50

Recently I was online and saw a technique on Stamp TV called Double Letterpress.  I just love techniques and just had to try this one.

As a reminder, here is the sketch.03-2013

You take an embossing folder and apply distress ink to the side where the image is debossed.  You then put your paper in the embossing folder and emboss it.  I took the paper out of the embossing folder and applied a second color of distress ink to the paper by rubbing the distress pad over the raised areas.  I then added a third color with a sponge dauber.  I just love the look.

The stamp I used on this card is from Stampin' Up!.  I also used a photo corner punch from Stampin' Up!  All the paper was paper from my stash.

Sorry I did not have time to add a bunch of pictures.  I am expecting my first grandchild anyday.  By the time this is posted, he should be here.  I am just getting the hang of being on the team here and promise to get better about posting pictures for the projects.
