Happy Anniversary double embossing

Took me quite a few tries to get the double embossing down, where you leave a blank spot for an image or sentiment.

Glad to say I think I got it. But not a quick card to make.
You have to cut the cardboard to have the "hole" (see the non embossed area where I stamped).
Then make the correct sandwich for your machine, I have the Big Shot. Then try and get a good impression then go back with the die and then reinforce the blank area. I used all SU products.

Then find a stamp image and hope you get it centered - glad to say I did. Unfortunately I still had to color it. Which is not my forte!

Anyways I am quite pleased with it, and I hope the intended person(s) whomever may receive this enjoys it.

You did a fantastic job with the double embossing!!! Your card is amazing!

I've seen tuts for double embossing but haven't had the nerve to try it yet -- you've given me some incentive to give it a try!!!
