Both these cards have been made using the Die sire Ebossalicious 8×8 Folder in the Floral Stitch design from Crafters Companion.
I have used them for back ground and inked over them and them I have also used them as an embellishment on my cards.
By embossing Co-ordinatations cardstock and sanding it back you get a different affect. Them by fussy cutting out the flowers you can then arrange them and use them as embellishments.
Just add some matting and layering and extra ribbons and bring you have a great card using very few materials.
I have then personalised these cards using the Die sire Alphabet Dies.
So go on have a go and use you embossing folders in a different way.
