Did you know it's National Coffee Day?  Yep!  it sure is!

To celebrate, I'm participating in the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!  You can join in, too!  My friend, Chaitali from Cuts, Crops & Creativity is hosting.  I'll give you all the deets in a minute, but first I wanted to share my card with you today.

I had an absolute blast making this card using the Double Inked Letterpress technique.  Have you see it before?  It's such a fun way to use your embossing folders – c'mon, fess up, how many do you have?? – in a new way.  The result is the great design from your folder embossed into the paper and “highlighted” in two different ink colors.

Pretty cool, right?

Please watch the video to see how it was done!

btw- if you watched the whole video, the answer is FIREBALLS!

The Double Inked Embossing tutorials is fun and it's easy.  I hope you will try it out yourself!
