Double Embossing

I learned something new this month. Well, I learned lots of new things this month, but I'm only going to discuss one in this post. Using two embossing folders on a background.
I first embossed my background cardstock using SU's Elegant Lines folder, I lightly went over the embossing with yellow. I then re-imbossed the cardstock using Cuttlebug's Styled Flowers folder. This one I used the orange and green to highlight the embossing. The butterflies are cut using SU's Beautiful Wings folder.
I think my card is very pretty, but I still have a long way to go to perfect this technique. One thing that would help immensely is having folders with more open designs. I'm going to have to try this with the dotted swiss folder. Hmmm
Thank you for dropping by. Take Care

This is wonderful, Joyce! I'd never seen the double embossing either. I love the colours on your card and the butterflies trailing up to the sentiment. Very lovely!
