Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
When embossing folders came on the scene a few years ago, I could not get enough of them.
I have amassed quite a collection, but for what they add to card making, I think they are the best thing since sliced bread! And you get a lot of bang for your buck! The texture and patterns give our cards
so much more eye appeal.
This week, I have made three simple cards using various embossing folders.
All cards are 41/4 by 5 1/2 inches.
#1 A Graduation card.
#2 Its a boy.
