Inlaid embossing

My friend Rhonda lent me her Cuttlebug and Big Shot dies and folders, so I have been playing a little. This technique is called inlaid embossing. It uses an embossing folder, some cardstock and punched or cut-out pieces. The Square Lattice embossing folder works especially well for this technique. You simply punch or cut out some images, adhere them to another piece of cardstock, and run them through the Big Shot in the embossing folder. It looks like an inlaid design!
My color combo is Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight. I used a few different circle punches for my shapes. The finishing touches on my card are: scallop border, Pacific Point ribbon and Daffodil Delight ink spritzed onto the card base.
Supplies: Stamps: Teeny Tiny Words; Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo; Ink: Daffodil Delight marker, Melon Mambo; Accessories: square lattice embossing folder, Pacific Point ribbon (retired), color spritzer tool, punches: 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circles; scallop border; modern label; word window
Happy stamping!

I still have this technique on my "list of things to do" - I love the circles and the colors.
