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.
