Gold Embossed Poinsettias

Today’s two cards share something in common:  gold embossing!  I have no idea why I hadn’t really done this earlier, I guess just one of those things.

This sweet little baby poinsettia is from Papertrey Ink.  I watercolored using Distress Markers in Barn Door, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, and Forest Moss.  A close up:

The next card was inspired from Chupa, she made this stunner the other day using a Penny Black poinsettia.

I decided to try it to, stamping on vellum.  The panel in the back is Chipped Sapphire Distress Stain swiped through a Heidi Swapp stencil.  Sentiment from Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards.  Close up:
