Double Emboss with Spellbinders


Hello there!

Thanks for stopping by!  I have a short tutorial on double-embossing with Spellbinders dies.  This has probably been done 100 million times, but I liked the way this die combo turned out when it was double embossed.  :o)


As you can see, I just used a scrap piece of paper for this die cut.  No reason to let all those scraps go to waste, is there???

The first step is to line your dies up however you want them.  In this case, I wanted the Standard Circles Large centered within the Classic Scalloped Circles Large

Once I got them lined up, I created my cutting sandwich and ran it through my Grand Caliber

***IMPORTANT – Do not attempt to cut anything when your dies are touching!  This could ruin your dies…and I don’t think any of us want that!!!


Once I have made my cut, I removed the excess paper, did my “sandwich” for embossing and ran it through the Grand Caliber again. 


This is the way the die cut looks once it’s removed from your dies. 


And, even though it’s hard to tell in this photo, this is the card I made with this “double embossed” die cut!


I used my airbrush to give it some color, then sprayed Glimmer Mist over my entire card, so I think it lost some of it’s embossing.  I’ll remember that for next time! 

I hope you found this useful and it gives you some ideas on other ways to use your Spellbinders dies.



Pin It!

Hi Billie;
Good tutorial. I guess I'm like most card makers, I don't use my Spellbinders to thier full potential. Thanks for sharing.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
