Vellum meets Double folder embossing

So, have you tried the Double Folder embossing?  I have received some questions about the exact procedure on how to accomplish this technique.   The first time I emboss the cardstock in a TEF you can run it through your Big Shot on tab 1 but when you emboss the 2nd time  use no tabs.  I have noticed that with my Big Shot a lot of the newer TEF can be run on no tabs and still get a great, deep impression. 

Here's what cardstock vellum looks like using the Double Folder embossing technique.

I used the Framed Tulips TEF and the Manhattan FlowerTEF.  Isn't it pretty?   Here I ran the Manhattan Flower TEF first and then the Framed Tulips TEF.

Here's a card I made using the DFE (double folder embossing) and cardstock vellum.

This is a quick and easy card.  I wanted the embossing to be the main focus on this sample.
