Embedded Embossing Technique

This week's LNS technique is to make a project using the embedded embossing technique.  This is a very simple and fun technique - you stamp your image of choice on cardstock, and then emboss it using an embossing folder.  Simple and fun!

I started by stamping the different leaves from the set, French Foliage, using Midnight Muse, Gumball Green and Soft Suede on a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Whisper White c/s.  Next I ran that piece through the Big Shot using the Houndstooth EF.  Added some neutral brads, a button, Midnight Muse Ribbon (which I love), and a sentiment!

Stamps: French Foliage, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks: Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Soft Suede
Papers: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Midnight Muse
Accessories: Big Shot, Houndstooth EF, Midnight Muse Satin Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Natural Designer Button, Neutral Brad, Early Espresso Baker's Twine, Paper Piercing Tool, Dimensionals, Glue Dots, Scissors

Eileen this is a very pretty card! I love the stamping and the embossing. I usually use a punch or something like that for this technique, but I love the stamping also. Beautiful!
