Future embossers -
I didn't see the first post on embossing/debossing, so I hope my information
is'nt way off topic. My favorite embossing dies (sp? usage?) to recommend to
first-time embossers are the little stencil books by Dover. They are about
5" x 7", have 6 different patterns in each book, cost $1.00US, pages are dark
colored - perfect for using with a lightbox, and are plastic coated so you
can wet or dry emboss.
Any embossing / debossing project seems to work best when the side you want
to be the front of your card FACES the stencil.
Also, I am pretty opinioned about the tool to use. I love the teflon
burnisher sold by Letraset.
Enjoy the extra dimension,
