KSS Ten Minute Card - Embedded Background

Today's challenge is fast and fun! Use your Kitchen Sink images to stamp a background panel for your card and then dry emboss it. Finish off the card with a crisp, clean sentiment panel. My samples are all Christmas, but feel free to use any KSS images and sentiments you desire. Embedding the images by dry embossing makes for a colorful and textured background for any occasion!

Should you play along in 10 Minute Card Challenge #43 and upload your card to the Kitchen Sink Gallery, include keyword 10MC43.

  1. These are just stunning, love how you did the background and the did the dry embossing with the lattice EF. I love them all. I haven't tried this yet, not sure I have the right KSS stamps, but may try the technique anyway, yours are so pretty. Thanks for my 10 Minute Monday fix :)

  6. I love this look Lynn. IN fact I did play with it a while ago and had forgotten how effective it is.
    Now to find some creating time!
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. It really cheered me in this rather bleak period.
    Today the sun is shining and we are about to move our son to Brisbane tomorrow.
    So there are patches of lovely breaking up the gloom.
