MCT Trending Now- Embossing

Hello! It's Trending Now day at MyCreativeTime. Today we are taking a look at embossing. I made 2  similar cards because my "practice" piece turned out pretty. :) For both cards I started by embossing the die from the Hey There Little Lady set into watercolor card stock that I had already cut with the Stitched Oval Dies. I used the Spellbinders tan embossing mat to emboss the die. Then I gold heat embossed the coordinating image from Hey There Little Lady. I used distress inks and water to paint the flowers for both cards. 

For this card I gold heat embossed the greeting from the My Thoughts Are With You set onto the banner from the Vintage Labels Dies. I gold heat embossed the Grainy Wood Background onto a panel cut with the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies

For this card I again gold heat embossed a greeting from the My Thoughts Are With You set. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies. I kept this card much more informal. I used a dot embossing folder to emboss the patterned paper I chose. {which I'm not sure I've done before and I super love the way it looks!} :)

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more embossed creations.
