TECHNIQUE THURSDAY, Inlaid Embossing...

The second card that we made in my Technique Thursday class last night was a request of one I did on my blog previously:  Inset Embossed Valentine.   Since I have already shown this card and the technique directions on my blog, I made a different version to share with you today.

I decided to try out the Red Glimmer Paper to see if it would work with this technique.  This paper is significantly thicker than regular card stock.  Because of the thickness, the Red Glimmer hearts did not emboss as well.  Also, the glitter makes it difficult to see the embossing at all.  It does set them in more than just gluing them on though and is still pretty that way.  And I just ADORE this Red Glimmer Paper.  It is awesome!  Enjoy!
