Magnificent Maple Truly Grateful Gold Ink vs. Gold Embossing

Which do you like better...Gold Ink or Gold Embossing? I decided to make a card each way to help me decide which I prefer.
 
First up, Gold Encore Ink, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I would love to be able to just use the Encore Inks as is, but they take forever to dry. Luckily I have LOTS of Clear Powder to emboss!

I like them both, but for different reasons! When you use Clear Embossing Powder you don't have to worry about stray flecks of colored Embossing Powder on your project and all the detail shows up. When you use colored Embossing Powder, it's very rich looking but you lose some of the detail of what you have stamped. I still can't decide for sure which I like better- guess it depends on the project!
 
Stamps: Magnificent Maple, Truly Grateful
 
Colors: Gold, Copper, Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory, Very Vanilla
 
Accessories: Taste of Textiles Specialty Paper (retired), Brushed Gold Card Stock, Burlap Ribbon, Clear and Gold Embossing Powder, Modern Label, 1" and 3/4" Circle Punches, and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack
 
I used the Multi-Purpose Adhesive Sheets to attach the Burlap to the card and attach the little pieces to the Burlap. I don't have to worry about anything coming apart when I use it!
