Inlaid Embossing Birthday Card

Can you tell that I really love the Inlaid Embossing Technique.  This is my third post this week, and all of the cards were made this way.  On today's card you can't see the embossing as well, but up close and in person you really get to see the polka dots coming through, and the layers look lik they are actually one piece of patterned paper instead of a piece of cardstock layered with DSP. 

I started with a card base of Soft Suede cardstock, and added a piece of Elegant Soiree Designer Series Paper which was placed on using snail adhesive.  I ran the front of the card through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The layered punch was made by punching a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Decorative Label punch and then the Very Vanilla punch was one of the tags from the Lots of Tags Sizzlits die.  To finish the card I added the sentiment and a piece of Crumb Cake seam binding. 

To get the sentiment on the punch in the right place I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  This is another great accessory that saves me from making a lot of mistakes.
