One Embossing Folder Three Ways

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope you're having a wonderful week so far.
I had a lovely day with my snuggalicious Granddaughter Ruby Mae yesterday whilst her Mummy was in Cheltenham Wedding Dress hunting - think it was a more successful trip this time - two hopefuls :o)

So today I'm here with a non-DT card - well 3 actually and as the post title says - they have all been made with the same embossing folder but using it different ways.

For the first one I simply embossed some white card and then highlighted the embossed area with Star Dust Stickles.

For the second one I inked the embossing folder using Weathered Wood Distress Ink before embossing some white card.

And for the third card I embossed then inked the embossed area with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

I can't make up my mind which I prefer - what do you think?

Card ingredients:
Embossing Folders: Couture Creations 'Christmas Lyrics' and Em-Bossalicious 'Christmas Elegance'
Weathered Wood Distress Ink
Star Dust Stickles
Silver Mirri Board
Martha Stewart Snowflake punches
Adhesive Pearls 
White Satin Ribbon & Silver Tinsel 

Busy day ahead - got to get the holiday washing and ironing done ready for packing tomorrow as I will be out most of Saturday - meeting up with my beautiful blogging buddy Claire at the GBCF and then we fly off on Sunday - I can hardly wait :o)

Thanks for popping in to see me today and for all your lovely comments left recently.
Have a fabulous day.
