I never tried double embossing before and so on this card I decided to give it a try. I dry embossed my background using the chevron embossing folder and then using my versamark ink pad and clear embossing powder I heat embossed over the raised embossed background. It turned out great and it looks neat in person. I even clear embossed over the blue truck on my image.
To create my image I did some paper piecing. I really didn't want to color the image so I just did some stamping. I stamped my image first using cajun craze ink and then I stamped it again onto a piece of scrap paper using night of navy ink. I cut out the night of navy truck and placed it on top of my main stamped image. I did the same thing for the 'fresh apples' sign using more mustard ink. I did use my SU markers to color in some of the grass and the apples.

I used the leafy image from the SU Just Belive stamp set. I stamped the leaves and then the sentiment slightly over it. I then cut it out using the ovals collection framelits. On the crumb cake oval I added some paper piercing and I did some distressing using my scissors along the oval edge.
I even tried a new technique on this card. After I dry embossed the chocolate chip layer using my argyle embossing folder I swiped my white craft ink pad along the raised areas to sort of give it the sanded/distressed look.
My background was dry embossed with some lines using my simply score board. I decided to add some ribbon with a button and twine.
