Christmas Cards for my MIL and FIL

In addition to making Christmas cards for my DH's grandma, I also made some for my MIL and FIL. I made 10 of each of these cards.

This card was inspired by Sharon Johnson's card:

Stamps: SU! Snow Swirled
Paper: gold metallic

Stamps: CTMH (can't think of the name of the stamp set right now)
Paper: CTMH holiday red
Accessories: Cuttlebug Winter House, Stickles

I have a question for anyone who has the Cuttlebug Winter House embossing folder. Does yours deeply emboss your cardstock? When I made these cards, I used my friends folder but used my machine and they were deeply embossed. I ordered a folder for myself and my sister used it today. She used a leftover circle that I had embossed with my friends folder and she noticed that there was a big difference in the two. My folder didn't emboss nearly as well as my friends and also, the images seemed to be a little different because she could not line the circle up over the full embossed sheet. I am going to get in touch with the company but was just wondering if anyone else could tell me how theirs embosses.

Hey there! Love these cards, awesome job! As far as your question about the folder, I do not have this one so I can't even think about why there would be a difference. Did you check to make sure you were using the correct plate combo? Best, Curt
