Inlaid Embossing #2 - Circles

Shelli's Creative Challenge this month was to try something new... when I saw samples of this technique, I knew I had to try it!


Another easy card from my technique class this weekend. It's a little more time consuming with all the punching and gluing of circles, but I love the way it turned out. It doesn't look like much until you run it through the embossing folder (Square Lattice). Then it's definitely a 'wow'. You could also use other shapes (flowers, hearts, stars come to my mind right away). This card was a CASE of this card by Lyssa.

I used the Button Embosslit and Button, Button stamp set from the Occasions Mini. I love that they co-ordinate with each other so perfectly!

Stamps: Button, Button, On Your Birthday
Inks: Concord Crush, Pear Pizazz
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Pear Pizazz, Daffodil Delight, Concord Crush
Punches: Circles (1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 3/8", 1 3/4"), Decorative Label
Other: Square Lattice Textured Impressions Folder, Button Embosslit

I've been seeing this around lately and have been wanting to try it for clubs in March! Yours looks so cool! I love the color combo!
