Embedded/Inlaid Embossing

     This is the newest, all-the-rage, technique.  I first saw it at the Baltimore Regionals I attended in October.  Unlike everyone else, I just was not WOWed by it.  I didn't like the look, so I never used the technique, until now.

     This technique is called by two different names:  Embedded Embossing and Inlaid Embossing.  So if you see either of these names, know that it's the same technique.

     To achieve this look, just follow the free mini tutorial I have below:


     Design your card in anyway you wish.  Layer card stock.  Just make sure you use adhesive on all the edges of your paper, otherwise it will pull up after it's been embossed (yes, I'm speaking from experience).  Next, use the embossing folder of your choice (here, I've used Square Lattice - the popular embossing folder for this technique), and put the entire completed front of your card in the embossing folder and run it through your Big Shot.  Done!  Embellish as you wish.

     Now, wasn't that easy?


CARD STOCK:  Crumb Cake, Pretty In Pink, & Very Vanilla

INK:  Pretty In Pink

STAMPS:  Teeny Tiny Wishes & Flight of the Butterfly

TOOLS:  Big Shot, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Butterfly Punch, Modern Label Punch, Word Window Punch
