Embossing Folders Dress up a card

 Today I'll show several examples of how embossing folders help dress up a card (as well as tone down a busy background).  This first one has a stamped focal.  I stamped it with white opaque ink, then colored it with chalk and cut it out with a die cut.  Holographic paper helps set it off nicely and coordinates well with the holographic sticker greeting.

 This one was done in a similar way - another die-cut white-stamped focal colored with chalks - complete with red holographic paper and greeting.

For these next two cards, the embossed pearlescent cream colored paper makes a special mat for the die-cut greeting.

 Ribbons and shaped brads help finish off these cards.

This one uses a Dazzle sticker placed on the embossed background and then colored in with smooch inks.

This one uses both a dazzle sticker (paper pieced with colorful papers) and a couple of brad buddies (reindeer and "joy").
My last example uses a double-matted greeting cut on my Silhouette, along with a purchased tag covered with die cuts and cut-out candy canes.
