Celebrating Sale-a-bration

Yes, that's right!  It's Sale-a-bration time again.  For those who aren't familiar with Stampin' Up!, Sale-a-bration is that special time of year when, for each $60 you spend (before shipping and taxes) you get a choice of free product from the Sale-a-bration brochure.  And what a choice!  Some of the items in the Sale-a-bration brochure would normally cost anywhere from $9.95 to $26.95 (if they were even available in our catalogues).  And from January 28th to March 31st, you can earn them for free just by buying the products you would have bought anyway.  Talk about a win-win!

Today I'm going to showcase the cute (and very versatile) Decorative Dots embossing folder that is only available through Sale-a-bration.  What I like most about this embossing folder (besides that it's free) is the way the large dots are randomly placed.

You may remember that I used the Decorative Dots embossing folder for that gold foil Wedding card in my blog hop post a few days ago.  To refresh your memory, here's a quick look at the card.

For a larger image, you can click on the card.  Doesn't the gold foil look like real gold because of the embossing?  It makes me think of hammered gold.  Love the look!

But this embossing folder is incredibly versatile.  Used along with the playful See Ya Later stamp set (also free in the Sale-a-bration brochure), we get a totally different result.  Looking at this card, you wouldn't think it was the same embossing folder that was used for the elegant card above, would you?

I can see so many other possibilities, too.  What about bubbles coming up in a glass of ale or air bubbles in water.  Both of those would be great used with the Core'dinations paper, wouldn't they?  Sand the embossed paper a bit and you wind up with the lighter bubbles.  What do you think you will do with this embossing folder?
