Cards with embossed and sanded solid core backgrounds

I am making cards for my stash.  I found these two square embossed and sanded backgrounds in my stash which were created with cardstock which has a solid colour core that is different than the outside colour.
For the first card I layered one of them over an ivory layer which I punched on the top and the bottom using an eyelet border punch (SU).  I also embossed three lines on both ends which I applied using my score tool and then I adhered this large element to a rust card front.  I waterecoloured the small floral wreath image (Melonheadz) and used 3D foam tape to adhere it to the front of my card.  I tore the edges of a laser printed vellum greeting and I glued it below the wreath.
For the second card, I layered the embossed square over white and then glued it to the top of a rust card.  I watercoloured a small stamped coffee cup image and layered it over blue then adhered it to the front of my card using 3D foam tape.  I found the perfect greeting in my stash so I punched three little stars out of the left hand side and layered it onto the same blue as the image.  I adhered it to the space below the focal element and then added the three small stars around the image.
Love how these turned out!!
