So, don't let the winter blahs get you down - think about spring and summer! The seed catalogs have started arriving at my house, and I can't wait to plan what to plant in next year's garden.
The embedded paper (a.k.a. 'inlaid embossing') technique was used on this card, and I really like it! Just lightly glue punched or die cut shapes to your cardstock (the 2-Way Glue Pen works well for this), tuck it into an embossing folder, then run the whole shebang through your Big Shot. Easy-peasy, and looks terrific! I imagine this works better with embossing folders that have a tight design, like the Square Lattice EF that I used.
