Make It Monday #101: Layered Embossing - thank you so much

Layered embossing is a lot of fun, as I have recently discovered.  Over at Papertrey Ink, they have a great video explaining this technique:
I set out to do some layered embossing on a Mat Stack 1 die cut.  I used one of the ornate frames from Pretty Peonies and embossed using Zing Brown Sugar embossing powder and some Versamark ink.  I layered this with a sentiment (Think Big) with Versamark and  Zing Aqua embossing powder.
I stamped the Mat Stack outline in Versamark ink and left it as is (no embossing).  I swiped some Vintage Tea dye duo ink to the edges and added it to the card base with foam dots.  The card base was a simple Rustic Cream piece embossed with the Quatrefoil cover plate. 
 When it is used to emboss rather than cut, it adds an almost quilted look:
A fun little card for a thank you is always useful, right?  And those enlarged sentiments are so nice and graphic - I'm going to miss that series.

Oh, and I was recently told about another embossing challenge so I will enter this card there as well.  Check it out here at the fabulous blog  Addicted to CAS- Embossing.
