Tina here with a fun technique to create some quick cards.
I used the Great Island Paradise embossing folder from "The Marriot" collection and Core'dinations cardstock.
Place your cardstock mat in the folder and spray generously with two or three mists (enough to cover your cardstock with just a little pooling)
Close the folder and run it through the embossing machine.
The mists get squeezed into the paper, and create a cool effect. Make sure you allow it to dry completely before attempting to adhere it to your card base.
You can also heat emboss the raised areas or use Glitzn'Glamour to embellish it.
And here's another one I did with slightly different colours.
