Could anyone tell me how I can emboss a card front and at the same time, leave a shape plain in the middle for example an oval. I have seen cards done this way and no matter what I do, I still get embossing all over. I cut out an oval of cardboard and used the reverse mask of that over the outside of the folder but that didn't work!! Would appreciate any help! TIA!
I know this technique is listed here a million times but my recollection is that you cut out a shape first out of thin cardboard (like a cereal box) place it on the card where you want the plain area to be, and then emboss. The shape will protect the paper from getting embossed. I hope that helps.
I have a couple of cards on my gallery with that de-embossing technique. The cardboard piece goes inside of the folder on top of the cardstock. A store in my area sells a set of pieces of cardboard already die cut called "Chippies" but I made my own using the back sheet of cardboard from a dp pack. You do adjust the plates you use when embossing - kind of trial and error to get the right pressure to emboss.
