Inlaid Embossing Technique


stamps by Marks Finest Papers (from a new set being introduced next week)
Geo Die of choice (I used a new Mini Geo Die by Pop Ups
Inks:  Distress Ink by Ranger "Weathered Wood" and Vintage also by Ranger "Java Fizz"
grosgrain brown ribbon unknown
papers by 7 Gypsies "Nottinghill"
Sizzix embossing folder "Flourish"
Metallic Dot by Craft Essentials
flower by Brides (from cake aisle at Michaels)
this was airbrushed with Copic marker E33

1)  Cut Geo Die with die cutting machine and fold, attach to paper

2)  Run entire piece through embossing folder

3)  Highlight with inkpad run lightly over high spots and adhere to cardfront

4)  Finish as desired

*this gives so much dimension and looks awesome IRL*

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow... would sure love to see this one in person. It looks so different in the picture than how you described making it. I've seen inlaid embossing before but it never looked this good!!! This is beautiful!!
