Dies as embossing folders.

Did you know that your dies can also act as embossing folders?  You can get it to where they leave an image but don’t cut.  So that envelope can have a matching imprint to your cut card.  Here’s how:

Make your sandwich for embossing folders instead of dies.  Take out the adapter plate or go to the second tab.  Then under the envelope and die add the silicone mat which will provide enough cushion so the die won’t cut.  This can also be done on cardstock.

So your sandwich will be from bottom to top…big shot, standard base with no adapter or on tab 2, cutting plate, silicone mat, envelope or cardstock, die of choice, and cutting plate.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
