2 ways with 1 embossing folder

2 more samples for Crafter's Companion, this time with a new Darice embossing folder and some new Core'dinations. I wanted to create 2 completely different looks with the same basic card design. The top card features the Kraft Core'dinations and has been severely distressed, torn and sanded. This would make a great male Birthday card. The bottom one has a much more feminine look using the new Pastels Core'dination which has just been lightly sanded. I used Baker's Twine for the top bunting and ribbon for the bottom one and added some Prima flowers.

I would like to enter the top card into the spooky hues challenge at Papertake and Sundae Bar at Paper Sundaes (black, distressing, sparkle (with the gems)). Both cards are for the embossing challenge at Charisma.
