I wanted to be sure to join the ODBD challenge to create a card using "embedded embossing". My friend and fellow challenge chaser Silke Ledlow did a photo tutorial on this technique. Isn't her card amazing? I didn't want to miss out on this one. **EDITED** Because of the issues with Blogger I ended up missing out on the challenge:) Just gotta laugh about it.
I used the colors from the current Play Date Cafe challenge: PDCC81. The stamped images are from Bird & Butterfly Labels (ODBD). They coordinate with Labels 18 dies from Spellbinders.
I first stamped the flourishes using silver pigment ink. After cutting, stamping and adhering the three die cuts, I ran the whole card through the cuttlebug and embossed the front with Papertrey's Picnic Plaid impression plate.
Stamps: Bird & Butterfly labels (ODBD), Fancy Flourishes (PTI), Tag-its #3 (PTI)
Paper: white (PTI)
Ink: pear tart (memento), silver (stampabilities), purple (memories)
Other: Labels 18 (spellbinders), picnic plaid ip (PTI), ribbon (hobby lobby), corner rounder
