I love techniques that are quick and easy – and the Two Tone Embossing Technique is just that. Check out this great card I made the other day for a friend.
This card uses the Seasonally Scattered stamp set from the Holiday Catalog (on page 43) and is great for this technique along with all kinds of other techniques too. I’ve used the Pool Party and Smoky Slate Embossing Powders – although there are all kinds of colors to choose from. I think it that it’s kind of cool the way the Smoky Slate picks up the Blackberry Bliss color too.
I know you can’t see it well in my picture, but I’ve used a quarter sheet of the Blackberry Bliss card stock for the base and then created my Pool Party card on top of that. This way I didn’t have to add a liner in the card. I love using this little trick – This is a great way to create your card when you want that dark pop of color, but don’t want to add a inside layer.
