Fast & Fun Friday - Inlaid Embossing

On Fridays, I share something quick & easy to make (under 15 minutes).

This card is one that we're making at my Technique Class this weekend. It also qualifies as quick and easy with the help of the Big Shot. This card is a CASE of a beautiful card I found created by Lyssa. I also tried a new technique (Inlaid Embossing) and used some of my new favourite products (Pear Pizazz Seam Binding & Nature Walk stamp set)... so it qualifies for Shelli's Creative Challenge this month.

I still have some openings available in my Sunday Classes... let me know if you want to come and make this card!

I used the Nature Walk stamp set and the Pear Pizazz Seam Binding from the Occasions Mini Catalogue. This technique is something new I tried (I have a few more to show you over the next little bit) and it's so easy! Just cut or punch cardstock pieces, stick them onto more cardstock, and run it through an embossing folder. This example is right on the card front (I ran the whole card front through), but you can also do smaller pieces and adhere them onto your card after.

Stamps: Nature Walk, Because I Care
Inks: Perfect Plum
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Naturals White
Other: Top Note Big Shot die, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, Pear Pizazz Seam Binding, Stampin' Sponge, Perfect Plum Stampin' Write Marker

That card is BEAUTIFUL, Liz. Love the colors you chose and I love the idea of running several layers through the big shot at once.
