Inlay Embossing

Let's make a big 'ol mess in the craft room today!! Using supplies that you probably already have, this tecnique is a must try for sure. So pull out your embossing folders, dies, punches, stamp sets, inks and paper scraps. 

For the Tree Card.... Lg tree 2 1/2" X 4" -notch at 1 1/4" (**angle cut from notch to corner for both sides creating the triangle shape)....Trunk 3/4" X 1"

                                 Md tree 1 1/2" X 3"-notch at 3/4"**.....Trunk 1/2" X 1"

                                 Sm tree 3/4" X 2"-notch at 3/8" **....Trunk 1/4" X 1"

-Cut the pieces for the trees and trunks using scraps

-Ink the edges of the trees and trunks using Distress Inks

-Glue the Trees directly to the card front

-Run the card front through a cutting machine such as the Big Shot (on the appropriate tab for embossing folders). It works best with any embossing folder with a dense image-meaning the image has a lot on it and not much open space.

-Glue the front to a base and pop up a sentiment and it's finished.... unless you want to add embellishments, ribbon, etc. 

For the Snowflake Card...I used multiple snowflake punches and followed the same steps.
