Default Emossing without a machine

Here is my tip: Embossing without a machine:
1.You can mist paper with water or ink, place in an embossing folder and roll over it a few times with a heavy rolling pin of wine bottle.
2.Use a brass stencil and stylus to emboss cardstock.
3.Use a texture plate, cardstock and a stylus to emboss a full sheet of paper, just move the plate as you go!
I recommend rubbing the back of the paper with waxed paper before embossing with a stylus to help it glide. Also, tape your paper in place when using a stencil or texture plate so the paper does not slip.
