It’s quite remarkable how we’re able to get intricate and delicate die-cuts with Thinlits dies. Did you know you can use the same dies to emboss cardstock too? Today I’m demonstrating my tips for embossing with Thinlits dies.

The goal is to emboss your cardstock without cutting through it. As promised, I’ve added the embossing sandwich so you don’t have to read the small print on the instructions included with the Big Shot Embossing Mats. The shim that worked better with my Big Shot is listed and noted with if needed. You’ll want to experiment and use the sandwich without it first.
