Looking for a different wow technique to try?  I have one that I have been meaning to share with you for a while.  However I haven't gotten a chance to photograph the steps and write out the directions until now.  The FREE tutorial follows the recipe.  I have seen this technique referred to by a few names.  You may see it as Inset, Inlaid or Embedded Embossing.   It is a very easy technique and once you try it, I know you will be hooked on it!

I am showing a very simple card with it here to showcase the technique.  You can actually make some really intricate, pretty cards with it.  I will try to show some soon.  Hope you enjoy this technique!

1.  Punch out, or die cut various shapes to be inlaid to your design.

2.  Adhere your shapes to your cardstock using a 2-way Glue Pen, Anywhere Glue Stick or  Mono Multi in your desired pattern.

3.  Place the finished card stock into an Embossing Folder.  An embossing folder with a close pattern works best.  My favorite is the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

4.  Run through the Big Shot.  This is the finished piece.

5.  Assemble into your finished card.


Thank you for blessing me with your comments! I truly appreciate each and every one. Have a fabulous day!
