Owl Valentine Inlaid Embossing Folder Technique

It's time to put away the Christmas stamping supplies and move on to the next year!
At last month's Technique Tuesday class, I taught my customers the inlaid embossing folder technique.  This was one of my samples:
Here is a close up of the inlaid section:
Isn't this sweet?  The technique is really easy!  Here are the technique instructions:
Big Shot/Platform/Standard Cutting Pads
Card Stock
Embossing Folder (I used the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.)
  • Punch pieces out and adhere to piece of card stock.
  • Run card stock through Big Shot with an Embossing Folder.
  • Mat and embellish as desired.
Polka Dot Embossing Folder works with anything!!!!
Smaller embossed image folder works the best.
Different color combinations can be fun too!
