Double Inlay Embossing


This is a great technique for a quick wow. Stamp your main image (script works beautifully) and then clear emboss the whole panel. Stamp another image with Versamark over top of this and then emboss in a different color of embossing powder, the image seems to blend into the bottom embossed layer. My gold doesn't show up so much in the photograpgh but it is really pretty in real life.
Card info: This is a sneak peek of a new set coming out next week from Mark's Finest Papers called Musical Holiday. I first embossed the musical score in clear and then embossed the French horn and treble clef images in gold over top. The sweet little Santa charm is also available at MFP. The sentiment is also embossed in gold.
Paper is SU Deck The Halls on Brushed Gold base with pearl accents and gold cording.
Project #14 in my Christmas Countdown.
