Ebony & Ivory Card – Double Embossed Technique

Welcome to the SU Stars Blog Hop…you've most likely arrived here from the main page www.su-stars.blogspot.com If you ever get lost along the way during the blog hop, you should go back to this main page to find the next stop. 

Today's blog hop features Ebony & Ivory Cards – sometimes simple color combinations are the best!  This card uses a fabulous technique called Double Embossing:


2012 SU Stars Blog Hop-Ebony & Ivory

  TodayToday' Today

The only "color" on this card is the Pear Pizzazz Pleated Satin Ribbon.  I used the Domestic Goddess DSP for the technique portion of the card.  Want to know how to do the double embossed technique?  Here are the supplies:


  • Card Stock/Designer Series Paper
  • Heat Gun/Embossing Powder/Embossing Buddy
  • VersaMark Inkpad
  • Sizzix Embossing Folder/Big Shot
  • Brayer


Run the Embossing Buddy over the card stock or DSP.  Ink brayer with Versamark ink.  Apply inked brayer to the side of the embossing folder with the design "pressed in".

Place the card stock or DSP face down on the inked side of the embossing folder and feed it through the Big Shot.

Cover inked paper with embossing powder and heat set.

Use double embossed piece on your project!


Don't you love this new ribbon?  This is our 3/8" Pleated Satin Ribbon which is available through April 30th in the Occasions Mini Catalog.
