ELIMINATING BORDER FOLDER LINES don't use the bottom B plate. put the folder and cardstock directly on top of plate A. place the craft stick on top of the border and topped that off with plate B.eliminating border folder lines
Use the shim in place of one of the cutting pads in your sandwich, and position it over the panel you want to emboss. The Big Shot only applies pressure to that part of the card stock that has the shim.
Vellum is beautiful when embossed, but it is a little bit fragile and sometimes tears or breaks when embossing. I find that if I sandwich the velum between two pieces of text-weight paper before inserting into the folder I have better results.
use kraft-core yardstick; cover embossing plate with embossing ink before dry embossing; cover embossed paper with white embossing powder; rub off raised shapes and around edges if preferred; sand over shapes to reveal kraft core
