I would like to get a much more pronounced look with the embossing that is supposed to be possible with the die (s). Any ideas or suggestions you have would be great.

As far as I know you can not cut AND emboss in one pass with manual dies and I have been using them for over 4 years
You cut first and then emboss .

First you cut the die . With a Cuttlebug it is from the bottom up A base-C plate -Die cut side up-CS-B plate and roll through.

Then you remove the C plate and set up this sandwich from the bottom up A base -B plate-Die with CS in it ridges up - Tan mat- 2-3 CS shims-B plate and roll through .
Hope this helps
