Butterfly Thank you - Double Embossing 2

This is the second card I made yesterday using the double embossing technique - this time using 2 different embossing folders.  Since I could not find  a tutorial for this method I will provide a step by step explanation.





The two embossing folders I used were the Fancy Fan Folder and the Oval from the Designer Frames set of 2.
1.  Cut 3 pieces of the cardboard ( from the DSP pack) - approximately  4.25 by 5.5 inches.
2.  After deciding where I wanted the oval on my card, I used the Ovals framelits to cut an oval out of each piece of card board.  To make sure the ovals are in the same spot on each piece of cardboard, I marked the oval on the 2nd and 3rd piece with a pencil before cutting out the ovals.
3.  Adhere the 3 pieces together.
4.  Attach this with a temporary adhesive to the top of the Fancy Fan embossing folder.
5.  Place cardstock inside the embossing folder, and run through the Big Shot on the multipurpose platform- with all tabs closed and only one cutting plate.  This results in an embossed piece of cardstock with an unembossed oval.
6. Attach the 3 die cut ovals together and attach to the back of the Oval designer embossing folder.
7.  Place the oval embossing folder over the area that is blank
8.  Place on top of the multipurpose platform and with all tabs closed run it through the Big Shot.
This gives you the second embossed area in the middle of the fancy fan embossed area.

The butterfly is made by stamping a butterfly from the Backyard Basics stamp set onto Vellum using Black Stazon ink, then colouring on the wrong side using markers.  The image was then die cut using the coordinating framelit.
