Inlaid Embossing

Another card we are doing in my technique club this week. I must say I LOVE this card. It is so fun and so easy. I saw it a while back and knew I need to try this technique out. I have since heard it called faux pressed flowers, but you don't necessarily have to use flowers, although I did ;).

     For this card we punched flowers using the Boho Blossoms punch (119858, $16.95), in melon mambo, bashful blue, peach parfait patterns dsp as well as the newsprint dsp. Now since these punches are so small we used the new SU! adhesive sheets (120805, $14.95 for 12 12x12 sheets) and just placed our punches onto the sheet. Next you just lift them off and place them wherever you like. The adhesive is attached to the back of your punched pieces, no messy glue to worry about. We placed all of our flowers onto the white cardstock and then embossed it with the Square Lattice embossing folder. We mounted the white onto Peach Parfait, added at strip of paper from the sale-a-bration Ice Cream Parlor set. As an added interest point we did also use the tulip border embossing folder just across the bottom of the card base and a strip of the dotted scallop ribbon punch in pear pizzazz.

Stamps - Apple Blossoms (hostess level 2)

**My technique club meets once a month, and they choose the dates. We make two or three cards and/or projects depending on the level of difficulty. The club consists of 6 ladies, and each purchases just $25 in product each month, with everyone getting an opportunity to be the hostess and enjoy earning hostess benefits. The class each month is free and everyone gets a free Idea Book and Catalog plus a free ink pad and 20% off one item during their hostess month. I would love to start another club as we have so much fun. Contact me today so I can put you down for the next one.**

Happy Stampin'
