Embossing Folders - Card & Notepads

Today I'll take a quick look at using embossing folders.  I find they can REALLY add a nice touch to many projects.  I use several different brands of embossing folders with my Big Shot and they all work pretty well.  This first example is this card that used the "diamonds" embossing folder by Sizzix.  As you can see, I not only chose to cut my embossed piece in half to create borders on either side of the card, I also fussy cut around the diamonds.  I can't remember for sure where I got the die cuts that form the focal of this card, but I DO remember that I had to add the word "Cherish" using a white gel pen.

Here are more examples of embossing - this time featuring some more of my covered notepads (instructions here):
This uses a swirl embossing folder and a button border embossing folder - both by Cuttlebug

This one adds another Cuttlebug border embossing folder -- a wavy line

And this one drops the button folder, making room for the stamped word.
Nope, the swirl folder isn't the only one that works for these notepads.  I use a variety of them, but these examples all happened to use the same one - because it is my favorite.

So, here are some examples of how I've used embossing.  How do YOU like to use embossing?????
