Embossabilities!

On my Facebook Live today, I shared some cards I "stepped up" with just a bit of embossing.  The cards were simple and beautiful to begin with, but with just an extra step, it goes from great to WOW!

Here's the first card, before embossing:


This card base is the new Terracotta Tile color.  Isn't it beautiful? I was thinking that it was Calypso Coral!  Very close!!  I love the new Mosaic Mood specialty designer paper.  If you remember, I had featured some fancy fold cards on my blog previously using this gorgeous paper.  Here's another beautiful pattern!!  I still need to add a sentiment or some bling to the card, but I will do that when I know what I'm using this card for.  

So, that was a very beautiful card, but check out how just a bit of embossing steps it up!!


This card has an extra layer of embossed cardstock -- I used the Mosaic 3D folder to emboss the layer over the card base.  It is the same color, but by adding the embossing, it looks like a totally different, more WOW card.  I DID add the sentiment and ribbon as well as flipping the card since the pattern seemed to lend itself to that - this also adds to the wow factor, but I truly believe that the embossed layer was the difference.  I will have the card dimensions and supply list below.  

Happy birthday to Kelly, my friend whom I made this card for!!  I hope she has a very special birthday!
