The first card has had the background piece of cardstock randomly sponged, run through the Big Shot machine and then embossed with gold embossing powder.
The sentiment has also been embossed with gold embossing powder.
These techniques have given this card a really gorgeous vintage look.

Our next card has had the background piece again run through the Big Shot - but this time the embossing folder was inked up with versamark embossing ink and once the background piece was run through the Big Shot it was sprinkled with black embossing powder and heat set. Next we randomly gold embossed sections to highlight areas.
