When I was out shopping for interesting materials to emboss, I specifically looked for leather and used it on card two** (card one was on vellum). I'd gone to Hobby Lobby and found some gorgeous colors. They also have a large selection of vinyl, both in rolls and 12x12" sheets. Picked up this crazy abstract print in one of the latter. Embossed it adding a scrap piece of card stock for stability.
The vinyl has an adhesive backing which, when I removed it, was beautifully embossed! I used it for a bonus card.

The material was tricky to adhere but the Tombow multi medium tacky glue worked perfectly, along with putting some weight on it. Same with the strip of vinyl, then the paper oval needed it to stick to the vinyl...
The loose piece of black card stock I tossed in with the vinyl also got embossed so I have a threefer!

** Noticed that my card two for Let's Squash It!! was very similar to card one - sorry about that! Not to worry, the post for card two also contained a second card with another piece of embossed leather and a totally different design. And if that wasn't enough, I remodeled card two after posting it! I added some thin frames from Honey Bee for a more graphic look. What do you think of the update?
Thanks to Gail and Jo, plus guest Jane, for all the fun embossing uncommon materials this month!!
Thanks to you for stopping by - wishing you a crafty day!
