I used a double-embossing technique on this card that I think adds enormous interest. In this case, I first embossed with a polka dot folder and then embossed again with this Cuttlebug flower folder. I have done a number of these in the past. This post is all about embossing folder fun - towards the bottom half are four other cards with the double-embossing technique.
This card also is the start of a project that I have had in my head for some time.
First, you should know that I really don't have a creative bone in my body. But I read blogs and study other cards to come up with ideas and then I try to put them all together into my work. One of the things that fascinates me is the way people layer punches and dies. A unique layering of punches can add so much - particularly to a clean and simple card. I often get stuck in a rut of punching an oval and a scalloped oval and calling it done.

I would LOVE your help. If you have created or seen a particurly nice layered punch or die idea (preferably using Stampin' Up product) - let me know. Link to it in your comments or send me an e-mail. I will add it to this document and will certainly credit you. In a month or so - I will convert this to an on-line document and link it in my sidebar, then we can all have these idea easily at hand!
