Embossed Embossing

 This month's Let's Squash It challenge is a technique I love - heat embossed dry embossing. 

For this card I used an NBUS embossing folder, which was a magazine freebie some years ago. I've got quite a few NBUS embossing folders, especially ones that are Things rather than patterns, because I'm never quite sure how I'll use them. 

Anyway, I embossed this one on green pearl card, first swiping the flat surface of the folder with embossing ink. Then I heat embossed with baby blue pearls embossing powder. With one dragonfly already in the scene, I absolutely HAD to fill that space with a couple of die cut ones! 

I am sharing this with

All the texture on this looks lovely and those dramatic black dragonfiles finish it off perfectly!
