This was a cool technique I learned from the stamp show that I just had to share.
First, pick out two embossing folders - one with a tight design, and one that has bolder lines.
take the tighter design template, and emboss a piece of cardstock running your "sandwich" through your machine ONLY ONCE - front to back and STOP.
Remove your cardstock. Now, take that SAME embossed cardstock, and place it into your bolder lined template. Run it through THREE times - front to back, back to front, front to back (i.e. crank it forward, crank it backward, and crank it forward again). Doing it 3 times gives you a deeper emboss.
When you are done, it looks like this... COOLIO!!!
And here's my card. TFL! Wendy
