  1. Here are some helpful embossing tips from Stampin’ Up! Embossing Folders should be fed through the Big Shot with the open end first. This will prevent the hinges from cracking. As with some other dies, folders, etc., you may need to use a shim under the folder; in the center; for added height. The other thing you can try is turning the folder over from time to time to see if that helps.

    Hello Mary: I’m so late with this comment, I’ve been busy with some family stuff and my blog. But I didn’t want to pass the chance to tell you that your card is so sweet, I love that embossing folder, it really adds so much texture to your design but, the way you framed your sentiment is really beautiful, your eye goes immediately to it.
    Thank you for sharing the video on how to embellish the envelopes, I wish our bills came out in pretty envelopes, that way it wouldn’t be so awful to get them in the mail box.
