ODBDSLC59 - Embedded Embossing

Hi everyone!  Today is my first post as a guest designer for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge and I am so excited.  The challenge this week is to use the super fun technique of embedded embossing.  It is a pretty straight forward idea.  You take a piece of cardstock cut to fit the front of your card.  You glue punched or diecut pieces of patterned paper or cardstock to the first cardstock piece,  let the glue dry for a bit, place the entire piece in your embossing folder and run through your embossing machine.   It is suggested that you use a embossing folder that has a pretty detailed pattern so that the glued on pieces don't start popping off. 



For my card I used the Sizzix embossing folder, Textile.  I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch for the butterflies.  They were punched from two different pieces of patterned paper from the My Minds Eye Stella & Rose (Hazel) 6x6 pad and then adhered along one side of the card.  The ODBD set Faith was used for the main image and verse. The card was finished with a light blue silk bow and some clear rhinestones.

Thanks for taking a peek.... I hope you will play along this week and give embedded embossing a try!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  SU! Soft Sky; PTI Vintage Cream; PP:  MME Stella & Rose (Hazel); Ink:  SU! Baja Breeze; Ancient Page Grey; Ribbon:  May Arts light blue silk; Hero Arts gem; Sizzix Textile embossing folder; Spellbinder rectangle die; Stamps:  ODBD Faith
