Fab Friday's Embossing

Frosted Designs hosts a Fabulous Friday Challenge which challenges you to use new techniques and products. This week's challenge was to use embossing.  I love embossing!  I love the fun little folders and my Big Shot to run them through.  It brings such a great texture to a card, layout element or even letters.

I just made two new cards.  I really feel like the embossed background gives them that extra oomph.

The first is a Thank You card for my daughter's wedding shower.  I embossed the background and then I punched out a couple of purple scallops, embossed them and cut into them to make them look like flowers.



































The second card is a Christmas card.  I made these for my step mom for her birthday.  First I embossed the background paper, then I rubbed it lightly with a white stamp pad.  I love the look that it gave the whole card!  It gave it that sort of old fashioned look.  I embossed the red solid paper too.
