Embedded Embossing

Today’s card took me two days to get pulled together. Not because the card was so terribly hard to make but because I had so many projects going on! My husband finally got done with the deck rails so they needed to be painted (super big thanks to Sandy for doing one side while I did the other!!!) and I painted my new concrete turtle (way more fun then the deck spindles!!!) The 5 hours went much faster talking with Sandy, especially when I thought about the 10 hours I would have been at it without her help!

So a few weeks ago my team lead Dawn Olchefski shared a card using Embedded Embossing and I just had to make a card using the technique. It sounds really exotic but in reality is adhering die cut pieces to a paper layer and then embossing the whole thing, die cuts and all.

The stamp set used on this card is the Nature’s Harvest set and the bottom two flower bunches have been embossed after being adhered to the Fancy Flora paper. The shimmer ribbon was tucked under the raised flower bunch and 5 of the 2021-2023 In Color Opals were added.

This close up shows the texture of the Basics Embossing Folder used here. The flowers were colored with Stampin’ Blend Markers. Light Daffodil Delight was used for the petals and Soft Suede for the centers. The leaves are done in two colors, light Granny Apple Green and light Old Olive. A Soft Sea Foam green marker was used on the edges of the flowers to make them blend with the background. On the front flower bunch the edges were left white and this layer was popped up with dimensionals.

Here’s my little turtle friend all ready to head back outside to his place by the front door. Our dog Max likes to lay with his head on the turtle. Hopefully the new paint job won’t interfere with their friendship, hehehe.

I hope that you give this Embedded Embossing Technique a try too! If you like any of the items used her simply click on the links below to purchase from my store.
