Double Embossing Technique & "the News"

This card shows off the double embossing technique. It's done by stamping your versamark pad onto the raised up image all over your embossing folder. Then your paper through the big shot like normal. Sprinkle embossing powder all over it and tap off excess. Heat with your embossing heat tool. I love this technique!
I used the Word Play stamp set since I thought of a wedding when I started using these colors. I used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy. The paper is Pocket Full of Posies which is new! You can find all of these products on my website HERE.

I made this card for the CPS Card Sketch Challenge HERE. I love how simple the sketch is, but you can add many layers or dress it up however you want!

Sadly the news I have to share is not so "great" anymore. A couple months ago when we were about to say I do, we found out we were pregnant. I was very shocked that I could get pregnant to easily, we just thought it would take a while. It didn't:) But the baby wasn't meant to be and we lost it after 7 weeks. So, we know that God has a different plan for us and that's alright. We are trying again! We can't wait to be great parents, we are ready!

Thanks for stopping by!
