TRIPLE Embossing

Hello friends!
When you have the right kind of stamps, the rest is easy.
 Take Merry Christmas as my example.
This card is all about embossing......triple, actually. 

I stamped the sentiment in multiple colors with MISTI.
Merry Christmas -001

 I then clear-embossed the image.
I moved the image off set just ever so slightly, I embossed the image in glitter embossing powder.

Last but certainly not the least, I silver-embossed all the edges.

There you've got your Triple Embossing.

Now that the kids are back to school, my son (in his last year of university) and we were reflecting on his summer co-op/internship in San Fransisco and we all think he had such an amazing working experience. Not only he photo bombed Mark Zuckerburg....

he also made poster boy for San Fransisco Marathon Instagram!

Isn't it epic? I think so. Thanks for stopping by!

Congrats to David! What a wonderful experience that must have been for him! It's hard to believe he's already in his last year at University...time flies when you're having fun, right?

I think you've really gotten your money's worth with your MISTI, Virginia! And, what a great effect you've created with your triple embossing technique...All that beautiful sparkle really makes this sentiment pop, and I love how you embossed the border!

Very pretty and sparkly. Looks fantastic. Equally as fantastic, your handsome David...perfect ambassador for the SF marathon. It''s hard to hide under a rock when you look that good.

Your card is unique. Simply using the greeting was brilliant. Adding the 'sparkle' - my goodness what a treat to see.
