Inlaid embossing (not for men only)

Debra Burgin 1103 Celebrate YouWhen I was designing the cards for this month’s stamp camps — the theme of which is Manly March — I wanted to use more than the traditional browns and grays.  Not that there’s anything wrong with those colors (in fact, I did use them this month), but I am more than ready to put those colors out of my stamping studio, my wardrobe, and my yard!

So I used a technique I’ve used before, but not in class — what I call Inlaid Embossing.  Just adhere shapes to a card stock panel, taking care to run adhesive to the edges of the shapes, and run the panel through the Big Shot with an embossing folder.  It’s a cool look and, with these colors, suitable for a man.  (I checked with mine.)

I see I took this photo before adding another, smaller circle of embossed NQN to the sentiment circle, but you get the idea!
