Double embossing and heat embossing on vellum

Hello everyone !!
This is Charu Joshi, from Crafted Creations ...
Today I will show you how to double emboss a cardstock using two embossing folders... It may also be called dry partial embossing in die cutting machine..
Normally when you dry emboss a piece of cardstock, you put the cardstock in an embossing folder and run the sandwitch within the plates throungh a diecutting machine...
But, when u have to double emboss the same piece of cardstock then you need to follow the following steps....

To make a finished card of 5" by 7" , I have taken this white card stock 4 3/4"  by 6 3/4"
Put the cardstock in the embossing folder, on one plate.. Now to complete the sandwitch, dont put the second plate on top... Instead, use a chipboard or three layers of cardstock or a piece of embossing pad on the desired length where you want your embossed design to occur..

Run it through machine and you get a partially embossed design.. Like this...
Now do the same steps for getting a different embossed design on the rest of the card stock...

Now we will do heat embossing on vellum..


Stamp the butterflies on vellum with versamark embossing ink and put white embossing powder on it.. Remove the extra powder and heat set it using a heat gun..
Now reverse the heat embossed butterfly and color it using Distress Ink and applicator..
I colored one butterfly in worn lipstick, and othe in peacock feathers..

Now fussy cut the butterflies...
Embellish this on the card.. I made this beautiful CAS card using the above two techniques..
Hope you too will try these techniques and dont forget to participate in our this month's challenge
