You're berry sweet!

Hiya! Have I mentioned that I LOVE the Clean And Simple 3 class at OnlineCardClasses??!! The fabulous Julie Ebersole shared a double embossing technique using dies. You need a die with a solid back {nesting dies won't work}. So I used the XL Label die by MyCreativeTime. You lay the die on the raised side of an open embossing folder with the blades facing up. Then lay your paper over it and put an embossing mat over that. Then, leaving the embossing folder open, you run it through your machine. And voila! This really cool effect! 
I stamped the strawberries from the Faceless Fruit set by PeachyKeenStamps. Then I gave them faces from the Kawaii Face Assortment set by PeachyKeenStamps. That sweet greeting is from the Fruit Sentiments One set also by PeachyKeenStamps. EEK! I love this technique! :)
