Embedded Embossing Triple Flower Card

This technique was a real WOW with my Stamp Club this month! I think everyone who didn't already own the Square Lattice embossing folder, bought one! This technique is called Inlaid Embossing or Embedded Embossing and it is soooo easy with the Big Shot and an embossing folder!

First, punch out your shapes with different colors of cardstock. We used the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch from the new Summer Mini Catalog. Next, adhere the punched shapes to your cardstock. We used the Sizzix Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to put them on. Peel back the top of the sheet, stick the shape on the adhesive and then peel back up. It can get a little tacky, especially with smaller, intricate shapes, but it covers so nicely and is easier than trying to get other adhesive on small pieces. Finally, run the cardstock through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. That's it! Easy, peasy! And it looks like the shapes are embedded into the cardstock. Give it a try!

I also used the Word Play stamp set on this card. You can get it on sale 30% off this month! What an incredible deal!! Check it out online here. (Note: The sale price doesn't show up until you add it to your shopping cart.)
