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.

#3 Thank You card

Punches small circles with a hand punch and
