Inlaid embossing...what took me so long?
A couple of details - Once I embossed the panel, I added a couple of raised smaller butterflies, punched flowers & some of my fave basic pearls to finish. The birthday tag was punched with the medium jewellery tag (I made this longer). Here's a closer pic.
1. Cut, die cut or punch out shapes in cardstock or patterned paper.
2. Glue shapes to piece of card. You can overlap layers, but don't go overboard. At this point, you may be thinking "I don't know about this" but keep going!
3. Place decorated card into the square lattice embossing folder (or other tightly patterned folder) & run through Big Shot.
4. Take out card from folder & look amazed, as you see the seemingly magical transformation of your card into a single layer. Easy!
I was really happy with how this turned out & encouraged to do some more. I've seen some phenomenal cards using this technique & next time I'll show you one I made that was inspired by some of my favourites. Leave a comment if you have any questions, tips or just want to say hi. Until next time...
