Double Embossing Technique

Heidi has a tutorial for us today, the Double Embossing Technique:
 First I used the VersaMark Ink pad to ink up the front of the embossing folder.
 Lay the paper onto the inked folder and close the folder.
 Run the paper through the cuttlebug or Big Shot machine.
 Remove the paper from the folder and sprinkle with Embossing Powder.  Lightly rub the raised portions to remove most of the excess powder that is clinging to the embossed image.
 Heat with a Heat tool until all the powder is embossed and shiny.  Trim down to the size you want to use on your card.

I cut out the oval from white cardstock with the scalloped oval die.  Then I stamped Seasons Greetings oval from the Prickley Pear CLR027B Winter Scalloped Oval 3 Clear Set onto the cut out oval.  Add some pearls and ribbon to complete the card!
