Tuesday Tip: Inlaid Embossing Technique

This is the card we made at last night’s Heartfelt Inkspiration group meeting.  It’s a new technique that I call Inlaid Embossing.  I learned it from Lyssa Griffin Zwolanek, a demonstrator from nearby Wisconsin (she named it differently).

It’s nothing more difficult than taking punched or die-cut items, thoroughly adhering them to a panel, and running the whole thing through the Big Shot in an embossing folder with an all-over pattern.  The pieces are squeezed into the panel and appear almost as though they have been inlaid.

It’s a very cool effect, although this particular card was given a thumbs-down by DH, for its gratuitous ribbon.

Paper:  Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy, Cajun Craze

Other:  Big Shot and Square Lattice Embossing Folder, 1/2″ Stitched-Poly Ribbon (Peach Parfait), Linen Thread, Stampin’ Dimensionals
