Trying something new

     I just decided to try something new.  I've never tried double embossing before until now. I really like the results. It is so easy to do to.  I think that i'll have to come up with something using this technique next month for our Mission gathering. We will probably need to make Valentines. It will almost be that time.

Cuttlebug heart die and embossing folder
