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.

Trio of Butterflies…


This is another card we made in the Easter/ Spring class. I love purple and yellow together even though they are complementary (opposite) colors on the color wheel and when mixed produce the neutral color grey. I even have a purple and yellow garden which the deer love as much as I do.


For the card above I cut:

10″ x 7″ piece of So Saffron Card Stock and scored it at 5″

4-1/2″x 6-1/2″ piece of Almost Amethyst Card Stock

4-1/4″ x 6-1/4″ Whisper White Card Stock

To mount the butterflies I cut:

1-1/2″ x 2″ pieces of Regal Rose, So Saffron and Almost  Amethyst Card Stocks

For the butterflies I used the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz DieBig Shot and Almost Amethyst, So Saffron and Sending Love Designer Series Paper

For the card band I cut a 6-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Almost Amethyst Designer Series Paper and along the long edge I used the Scallop Border Punch

The greeting was stamped from the Eggcoutrements Stamp Set and cut it out with the Designer Label Punch. This is a great set as it coordinates with various Stampin’ Up punches. I placed the greeting in a Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware, used a piece of So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon.



Before layering the card as shown I added a pierced design to each corner with the Paper Piercing Tool and Mat Pack.                                                                                                              


Thanks for visiting and I sincerely hope this puts you in the mood for Spring!
