ODBD Shining Light Challenge: Embedded Embossing

I've never been much for participating in a technique challenge. Usually they require supplies I don't have or just seem to complicated or mind-boggling for me. However, I've realized that sometimes I'm just not comfortable trying new things and I need to learn some new techniques or all my cards will look the same.

With than in mind I decided to participate in Our Daily Bread Designs Shining Light Challenge this week. It's a technique called Embedded Embossing and you can read all about the challenge and technique here: OBDSLC59

Another thing I don't normally due is combine challenges in one creation as that boggles my mind as well. But, I figured it wouldn't get too crazy if I just combined it with the Sketch Tuesday 108 from Christian Paper Crafts.

Here is what I ended up with using the combination of challenges
I'm pretty pleased with how the embedded embossing technique turned out and would like to try it again with a different embossing folder. My card size is 6.5 x 5 so I had to use the only 5x7 embossing folder I own, which is Polka Dots from Cuttlebug. 

  • ODBD Scripture Collection 2
  • Polka Dots 5x7 Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  • Cricut Expressions & Elegant Edges Cartridge
  • Close to My Heart metal embellishments
  • Stampin' Up! Old Olive CS, Botanical Gazette DSP, Old Olive Classic Ink

Thanks for stopping by today!
