These are great, Lori! I really love the textile folder one. It is beautiful. I have used foil (reg kitchen and the tooling foils in my Cuttlebug. It is fun isn't it? For the kitchen foil, I sometimes Xyron it to a sheet of cardstock to give it more weight. The colored tooling foils are fun...they are silver on the back, so you can sand the color off the raised areas after embossing and it looks super cool. You have me itching to play today now!!

I really like the green with pink flowers! The top photo is the best!!! Nice! The bottom one is great too! I like how it looks sorta antique-ish!

So pretty, Lori!! I've done it with kitchen foil, too, by using the Xyron and attaching it to cardstock....so easy and so effective! Try using foil wrapping paper...it's a blast, too!! You make such gorgeous cards!
