Embedded Embossing

June workshop was all about embossing and this is one of the cards my friends made. The inspiration is from a card I saw by Michele Reynolds on Stampin Connections.

The base is pink pirouette with celery CS layered onto it. The white CS layer has little leaves diecut and glued on as well as flowers made with Boho Blossoms and itty bitty shapes punches. A 1/8 inch hand held punches were used to make the little center circles. Once it looks the way you want the way you want, insert the whole thing into the square lattice embossing folder to emboss all the layers in one fell swoop. The Four frames stamp is stamped in chocolate chip then punched out usng the decorative label punch. Punch 2 more out of the pink CS and cut it as shown previously to creative layers behind the stamped image. Warp a piece of celery satin ribbon and tuck the end under the celery layer before permanently taping down. then mount the frame using dimensionals. Biggest challenge is punching the flowers and not losing the little bitty centers!
