Peeking Teddy Bear and Embossing technique

Hello crafters... Happy Wednesday!!
I am super excited to be sharing my project I created for my post over at the Joy's Life Design Team blog. Not only am I sharing my card, but also a little embossing technique, you may or may not have seen before. :)
First, here is my card:
Did you notice the embossed background??
 This look is accomplished by using white core cardstock and a sanding block.
I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the cardstock:

And the final look after sanding:
You can also emboss your die cuts to add texture, like this:

I used Joy's "Oh Christmas Puns" for the adorable sentiment:
Aren't those fonts amazing??
I just love that stamp!!

Supplies used:

Base card cardstock:  Core'dinations Color Core Cardstock
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Textured cardstock: Bazzill
Smooth Cardstock: Stampin Up
