This first card has a lot of texture. I adhered the panel of DSP to some Soft Suede cardstock, then ran the two layers through my Big Shot (die-cutting and embossing machine) inside the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I love the resulting rich, brocade look to it. The scalloped circle is punched from another of the pieces of paper in this collection - beautiful, don't you think?

My second card uses as its focal point the second embossing folder in the new Designer Frames set. LOVE these little folders; they're fast becoming a favourite new toy. The floral paper, punched out with the XL Oval punch, fits perfectly inside the oval frame - love that!
