Texture with Dry Embossing

Hi crafting friends...It's my day to share some inspiration over at A2Z Scrapbooking,  Our theme this month is Texture.   You can get awesome texture using embossing folders.  I have two cards to share with you today.
First up
Metallic textured card
This card uses a technique I saw over on Jennifer McGuire's blog.  It used distress inks and Perfect Pearls.  I used Fossilised Amber and Bronze Perfect Pearls to do the metallic panel after adding masking around the edge.  Once it dried, I used my trusty Cuttlebug to emboss with a We Are Memory Keepers 3D folder.  It really adds a heap of texture to the panel.  I finished off with a die and sentiment from the Hello Stamp and die set and a few black pearls.  Matted onto black and white card before adding to a black card.
My second card uses a stamp and die from last Christmas.
Christmas Holly
This time I used Hero Arts Ombre Ink (Greens) to make my metallic panel together with Perfect Pearls. Embossed with another WRMK 3D folders.  Stamped the Hero Arts Holly Leaves in black and clear embossed onto green card.  Added some additional colour with a Zig marker.   Then die cut it out.  Stamped the sentiment in Versafine Onyx black ink.  Coloured some gems with a Copic marker to get my red berries.   Trimmed the panel and matted with some gold foil card and onto a dark green base.
