Monochromatic Craft Concepts Card Duo!

This week's challenge on the CropStop blog is monochromatic cards.  I have two for you today that also feature the very fun new Crafts Concepts embossing folders.

The first card features the Crafts Concepts Bees Delight embossing folder.  I decided to go *un-bee-ish* for my theme.  I embossed the acetate panel from the packaging and love the alternate design I got...a chevron/diamond stripe!  How cool is that?!

I simply attaced my acetate panel to some eggplant cardstock with glue dots hidden behind the Candi Dots embellishments and sentiment.

The focal image is from Cuttlebug's Mini Embossing Folders - Birthday Jelly set.  
For my second card today, I used Craft Concept's Tall Trees Embossing Folder.

I also used the packaging acetate for this card.  First I painted the back with some Making Memories Honeydew Scrapbook Colors paint.  Once dry, I ran the piece through the Big Shot with the paint side down.  I could have reversed this and then sanded the tree's lightly....but for this piece I went for a more muted embossed look, I liked the streaked paint.

This card is embossed with some Candi Dots embellishments and ribbon.  Stamps are from SU!'s Trendy Trees set and went well with this embossing folder.
