Less Is more - OLC - with embossing

Well what can I say I got a bit carried away with this wk and have done three cards , so thanks to Mandi and Chrissie , for giving me something else to try out . Yes I ve used my embossing folders before but  normally its to add some layers to the card rather than straight on to the card . The Xmas one I will be doing lots more off as my mum saw it and asked for some .
So if you fancy a go to then go visit the blog of Less Is More

So here are my cards and what a used , not alot really

Number 1

Items used
Embossing folder - cuttlebug
then I sanded it a little bit and added gems from wild orchids

Number 2
On white card this time

This time I used promarkers to add some colour

Last one promise

also used promarkers to add some colour and a peel off from my stash which was also coloured with promarkers
And as always would love some feedback

Great selection of cards - your colouring of the raised embossed areas is great - I just can't do that!! I particularly like the snowflakes!!
