Good Morning Marnie here to share how to Dry Emboss with your Stencils.
You Will Need - All of the plates you would use for an embossing fold in your particular machine and a plastic stencil plus a rubber embossing mat and a metal shim.
Start building your sandwich with the base plate, in this case with the Big Shot or Big Kick open to tab 1, then the first clear plate. Now add the rubber embossing mat and then your piece of paper then the stencil on top of that.
On top of all that add the metal shim.
And finally top it off with your last clear plate. The entire sandwich may need to be tweeked for other styles of machines just play around with it.
Now run your sandwich through the machine. I usually run it back and forth a couple of times.
This is how the embossing will look.
I then rub some Distress ink across the embossing.
This will make the embossing POP.
