Embedded Embossed Butterflies…

Welcome, once again Lakeside Stamper Friends!

This card is one we made at my Friday’s Folded Card and Embedded Embossing Class.  Embedded Embossing is the hottest trend today in card-making. This was a hit with all the ladies in the class. They actually got giddy with excitement when it was their turn to emboss their cards. The Embedded Embossing Technique is very easy, but, has very impressive results. I’m always amazed at what one can achieve with paper. See if you don’t agree?

Embedded Embossing Card

Here’s what to do:

For your Card Stock layers,

1.    Cut a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Early Espresso Card Stock and score it at 4-1/4″.

2.    Cut a 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ of Baja Breeze Card Stock.

3.    Cut a 5″ x 3-3/4″ piece of  Very Vanilla Card Stock.

4.    With a piece of  Very Vanilla, the Big Shot and the Lattice Bigz Die cut out a lattice.

5.    With a piece of Pawsitively Prints II Designer Series Paper, the Big Shot and the Embosslits Beautiful Wings, cut & emboss the butterflies.

6.    With Snail Adhesive, tape the Very Vanilla Lattice cut-out on the Baja Breeze Card Stock.

7.    Then adhere the largest and smallest butterfly as shown.

Now comes the magic!

8.    Place the Baja Breeze with the lattice and butterflies, in the Square Lattice Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot.



9.    With a Paper Piercing Tool, pierce three holes in the bottom right corner and place one Real Red Detail 2 Embedded Embossing Brad in each hole.


10.    Layer the Very Vanilla on the Early Espresso and the Baja Breeze on the Very Vanilla.

11.    Adhere the other two butterflies as shown in the photo.

Sit back and admire the results!

This technique could not be done without the Big Shot. The Big Shot and Big Shot Dies offer an amazing multipurpose cutting system. Cut paper, chip-board, vinyl, fabric, cork, wood and metal sheets and more! Embossing is also made possible with the Big Shot.
