Special Technique - Easter Wishes

This is project 3 of 3 from a workshop this past weekend. If you follow my blog, you *know* I {heart} my Big Shot! This awesome technique utilizes the Big Shot - it's called "Inlaid Embossing". First I created the butterflies using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (an SU exclusive) in Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz and Bashful Blue. Then I grabbed the swirl image from "Baroque Motifs", inked it in Peach Parfait and stamped off 3 times before stamping the image on the Very Vanilla. I used Snail Adhesive to adhere the butterflies. Here's where the technique comes in - place the Very Vanilla layer that has the butterflies on it - in the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and run it through the Big Shot. It look s like the butterflies are part of the layer!

Tip: Try the Inlaid embossing Technique using some of SU's heart or circle punches too - and try different embossing folders too - like Square lattice, Vintage Wallpaper and Finial Press.

The sentiment is from "All Holidays", and was stamped in Perfect Plum, then punched with the Curly Label and attached with Dimensionals. The tiny Perfect Plum butterfly is our touch of 'bling' from the Two Way Glue Pen and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, and is attached with a rolled up Mini Glue Dot. The In Color, Peach Parfait, is the base of the card. ENJOY!
