Not a good day grrrr

Sorry not to have posted for a few days, life got in the way. I was working on a card made with my Cameo that has ended up in the trash, added to that my hairdresser came hours late then burnt me!!!! So I'm going to show you 2 cards instead, like they used to say on Blue Peter "here's one I made earlier". It's not with sticky backed plastic though for those of you born early enough to get that joke! Again they are embossed as I was unable to tear myself away once I got started.
My first layer onto my cardstock is a textured card in a nice shade of pewter (well that's what I call it). Next is a lace edge that I made with my Cricut and kept in my stash. On top of this is the embossed layer. I've coloured the flowers and leaves with Copics to give it a spring like feel, cheery for a get well card. I typed Get Well into Studio and then cut it out with the Cameo layering this onto a square of the textured layer I first began with. This is set onto a small green cut I did on the Cameo. The whole card is sat on a lovely little holder which I downloaded from the Silhouette Store and cut out on my Cameo, so useful for photographing cards.

This second card is another get well as I've needed to use a few from my stock of late. My base cardstock is dark gold. On top of this I've added a layer of lighter gold textured card. The embossed layer is pearlised cream paper and once again I've done some colouring here and there but this time with metallic glimmer paints to pick up the metallic shades in the card layers. The sentiment is the same one I typed myself as above but cut in the light gold card and attached to a dark gold mat. I do hope I've not bored you with my embossing? I've made more but may leave them to post at a future date such as today when all went wrong.
