Wedding Shower Card - New Cuttlebug Technique

Hey everyone! I am so happy to share this card with you! It took some research, but it was surprisingly easy! The inspiration for this card came from The Cuttlebug Spot's blog - with a new technique called Double Embossing. I had to alter the way they did it because of product availability - so I wanted to share with you how I did it.

First I made a A2 size card on my Design Studio program (you can also do this on your Gypsy). Because I had the size and image decided for the card, I measured where the stamp that I wanted non-embossed to be. I also measured the size of the actual stamped imaged.

I made a rectangle the size of my image and placed it in the card template in DS. I cut out two of these from chipboard.

After I cut out both pieces I placed the stamp inside the hole in the template to double check my sizes and placement.

I then ran everything through my cuttlebug. Here's the sandwich:
A plate
embossing folder with paper in it
both templates (lightly adhered together)
C plate

Here is the finished paper after it has been cuttlebuged :)

I had cut the bride from the Sweet Hearts Cartridge @ 4 1/2 inches. I placed the bride on the card with pop dots.

I wet-embossed "Congrats" with a stamp I purchased at my local HL.

Thanks for looking!
