Would you like to see my favorite embossing folder?

It really is a toss-up between Merry Melody:

and Timeworn Type:

Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder

You can create a textured background of sheet music using the Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder. Inspired by the traditional Christmas song “Joy to the World,” this 3D embossing folder not only allows you to easily add texture to your Christmas cards but it will also give them a festive touch that everyone will love.

The antique look of the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder adds aged detail and texture to any project. You can use it as a layering piece to add dimension to all of your cards and scrapbook layouts. Funny because I am not much of a crafter who likes to age projects but this is the exception of my silly rule. 

If I am completely honest with myself, I had a rush of excitement when I first spotted Timeworn Type in the July - December catalog. I think the Merry Melody is too seasonal or wedding-ish (in my opinion) and I have all body parts crossed the Timeworn Type does not retire on 3 January. It is does, you will hear loud sobbing echoing all over the world (ha). 

So now that you know my all-time fave embossing folder, how about a project featuring it?
