I recently purchased the Tim Holtz Embossing Diffusers by Sizzix which makes it easy to create the Double Embossing technique. I have created a few cards using this product which I will share with you over the next couple of weeks.
The embossing diffusers come with 3 different shapes and for each shape you get the positive and the negative piece … which allows you to create some fun looks using your existing embossing folders. I don’t know about you but I have a TON of embossing folders so I like the idea of this new tool for more versatility.
For this card I used the circle embossing diffuser and I used both the positive and negative piece. The diffuser goes on top of your embossing folder you want to use in place of one of your cutting plates which. Where there is a hole or no diffuser your embossing folder does not emboss. Confused … there are many videos out there which should help.
Anyway back to my card. I first used the Sizzix Brick Wall Embossing Folder through my big shot using the circle embossing diffuser (the one which has the circle cut out of the centre. You can see how the brick wall didn’t emboss in the centre of my card which then allowed me to use another embossing folder (dots) and this time I used the circle and lined that up so it was over the empty circle on my card and viola … easy!
