Here is the project that I have made for our hop today…

I hadn’t heard of ‘inlaid embossing’ until a few months ago but it has quickly become one of my favourite techniques. Here I have used it to combine the Pine Tree Punch and Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I have then cut a layer from Whisper White cardstock and adhered one of the punched Pine Trees, also cut from Cherry Cobbler cardstock. This layer is then embossed using the Pinewood Planks folder which embosses both the background and the Pine Tree! I think this looks fabulous and people always seem to be impressed as they can’t quite work out how you have achieved it.

The sentiment piece is created by heat embossing the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment, from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies and layered onto a larger rectangle cut from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP. I adhered the sentiment piece using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is accomplished with the addition of a few gold Metallic Pearls around the tree.

    1. Thank you! The tree is cut out with the punch and stuck on before embossing! It’s a great technique I only found out about a while ago but now I love it x
