I had a FB friend, ask me to do a video on embossing with my cricut….so, here it is!
I am so excited about this awesome technique and how it opens up the world of possibilities to Cricut users. This is something you could do in the Expression or the Baby Bug.
The only “extra” supplies you will need is a foam mat of some sort. I used the rubber pad that comes with the embossing kit for the Big Shot. So, you may already have a piece….if not…. you can buy the Sizzix Texturz Plates Starter Kit– it comes with 6 embossing designs, and the Silicone Rubber pad. (can be found at overstock for uner $20.) If you have the cuttlebug, that’s great–because the texturz can me used in the cuttlebug!!
A similar rubber mat comes with spellbinders OR you can probably just go to the hardware store, and make your own?? Let me know if you do this, because I’d like to make a 12×12 one.
Here we go! Note: The blade depth was set at 6, medium speed and high pressure. Though, you could probably go to max pressure easily.
Here is the embossed flower I created with my expression- (although, I did think it looked like a snowflake)
