For all my cards today I used the same embossing folder and the same technique. However you can see that just by changing the color of your cardstock and the color of your ink you can get different looks.

Card 1 : tone on tone

For this background I did ink the top flap of my embossing folder with a darker shade of ink than my cardstock. This adds even more shadows to the embossed design and helps the flowers pop even more.

Card 2 : white ink on craft

This combinations gives you a softer look so you can easily add focal points on top without loosing the beauty of the background.

Love how my poinsettia focal point matches the background design!

Card 3 : gold embossing

Now how stunning is this one? Don’t cover this up! Just stick a sentiment and you are good to go!

So festive and shiny!

    Vicky,
    I love all 3 of these cards. The poinsettia embossing folder gives a beautiful impression. My favorite of the 3 is the red card. The little green leaf that you added is the perfect touch. Thanks for sharing.

    These are some of the most gorgeous cards. If you look at the red one it almost looks pierced in the center of the veins. Beautiful

  24. These cards are lovely and different and still unified by more than just the fact that you used the same embossing folder. And thanks for the great video — I can’t live without videos!
