Altenew_Florescent EP_RazzleberryEP_Virginia#2
For this card, I did a two-tone embossing. I stamped the Handmade Tags Stamps to stamp a colorful background.

I also applied Warm Gray Ink over  the Halftone Stencil to create the polka dots.
The Tonic Silver Moondust was added for the extra sparkle.

Product feature # 2: Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder
Altenew_RoseGoldEP_Virginia#1
I embossed with one of the stamp set from Winter Rose on Bazzill Vellum.

Aren't the embossed images amazing? The sentiment was created with Script Words Die with the Gold Foil cardstock.

The Champagne sequins are perfect for this!

#3 Product Feature: Copper Crisp Embossing Powder

I did partial-embossing with the pattern paper from the Reflection Paper Pad.
