Exchange cards that feature white embossing and watercolour

I made up a couple of kits from my last class for my exchange cards for this month.  These are so fun because the design emerges when you apply colour!!  The design is embossed on watercolour paper using white embossing powder so the design is very subtle until you add watercolour.  The gift and teapot stamps have been in my stash for a long while and it had been quite a while since I had actually used a rubber stamp as I am much more likely these days to use digital stamps in my cardmaking.  I also stamped the greetings onto my label die cuts (Spellbinders) using a Versafine Black stamp pad.  I wrapped the fiber around my background and incorporated the greeting label just before tying it off.  These large focal elements were glued to the front of a black card which really highlights the colours nicely!!  
So these are off to my card exchange partners in today's mail!!!
