Some tips for the tufted embossing folder.

I bet some of you are looking at the catalog and asking yourself how to line up the cardstock in the Tufted Embossing Folder so the image is not crooked.  There is a line to help with that and it works.  I took some pictures to help with this.  This sample is using the gold foil paper.

How to emboss on foil cardstock.

Dry embossing on foil cardstock can be a little tricky unless you like the cracked, distressed look.  I found to take at least one of the cutting plates out of the stack or sandwich and shim it with a few pieces of cardstock works the best.  Basically when you start to push the stack through the machine you want your handle to barely move.  If your stack slides right through there’s not enough to make it work and if it is the regular stiffness where the handle really moves up then it will crack your paper.  The trick is to just get your handle to barely move.  I have had the best results of not cracking my foil paper this way.

I hope I am making sense to you but in case I am not…here’s the video link on how to create this gorgeous card.
