Every once in a while, I like to take a break from creating layouts and bust out a card or two. I've wanted to use Cheery Lynn Designs' Going Batty die for the longest time, but didn't have any ideas outside of Halloween...that is until now! I layered one of the classic nested circle dies and 2 different doilies dies to serve as the back drop for the bats.
I used the Large Rectangle Stitcher Plate and the Embossing Pad to emboss the Core'dinations Cardstock card base and then sanded so the pattern and color would shine through.

I created this next card for a friend who's due to have a baby girl any day now! I used this technique for stretching the larger french flair die cut.
There's lots of texture on this card, but I added even more by embossing using the Large Rectangle Pierce Plate.
Here's a list of the supplies used on these 2 cards--just click on each item to find in in the store!
