This card uses the Double Embossing Technique to provide lots of texture.

This card also uses one of my go-to layouts.  The two matted rectangle layers combined with a circle provide a lot of layout versatility that works with portrait layouts like this one and also landscape layers.  You can mix and match the 3 elements and move them around to create quite different looks.

Download the tutorial at this link for the sizes of each element, but don't be afraid to change them up to suit your card.  A great layout is always a good starting point but make it your own!

This card was made with my Goddaughter in mind.  She has been house hunting for a few months, and I thought it would be a good idea to have a card in my stash ready to go in the mail to her when she finally finds her new home.

She is an adventurous nature lover that has prioritized the lot over the house, so I decided the Ringed with Nature stamp set would be appropriate.  She wants a large lot filled with trees, flowers, and plants, so these tree rings seemed to be an appropriate choice.  I tucked several tree branches behind the house to symbolize a wooded lot.

I guess we will see how her search ends, but one way or another, this card has her name on it!

If you look closely (you may have to zoom in) you will see that the vertical panel on the left has been double embossed.  I used the Tree Rings Hybrid embossing folder and the Timber 3D embossing folder.  The double embossing technique doubles the texture of the embossed panel.

There are a few different techniques that are also referred to as "Double Embossing."  For more information on this particular Double Embossing Technique view this recent video that I created for Learning with Friends.  The video provides a few pointers, tips and tricks and demonstrate how to do the technique.  

If you have any questions on the technique or the card, please leave me a comment.  Remember, I am always here to help!

I left the inside of the card clean and simple to make sure I had plenty of room to write a note of congratulations!  Using the same designer series paper as was used on the card front to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope creates a beautiful, coordinated set of stationery.

What do you think?  Will my Goddaughter like it?  I hope so.  Now we just need to find the house to go with it!
