I too wanted a curvy line to emboss on my Paper Tea Cups! Here's what I did: I used a block of wood, draw the panel on which you want the curve. (I only needed a small space & if I had to many at once it would go CROOKED...) After drawing the curvy line on this panel, I took a wood burner & burned the curvy line. Trying to keep the edges smooth. Then, lay your paper over what you've done & use you stylus to press the curve into the paper. ( The burned area doesn't have to be very deep!) That's how I got a curvy design on my Tea Cup here: TLady Designs: It's ALMOST "TEA TIME!" (Just scroll up to see the Tea Cup!)
You could cut a cardboard template similarly. Cut a base piece of stiff board. Then cut two pieces that, when placed 1/16" apart and glued in place, make a channel you could use to emboss. It would be like those DIY embossing folders.

That's only if you want multiples though. I think for just one I'd use my embossing stylus and my flower shaping/embossing mat.
