Default no line embossing folders

I thought I remembered seeing a way to use the smaller embossing folders without leaving the edge marks. It seems like it used a silicone pad and a cuttlebug or BigShot. Anyone know what I'm talking about or how to achieve this? Thanks. Jill

What I do is cut a piece of plumbers gasket the size of the embossing folder and place it on top of folder when running it through big shot. This works great for those narrow embossing folders like words or just a line art. When I do this I do not have the lines from the narrow embossing folder on my card/envelope, just the design,

If you just want a partial of an embossing folder you can cut a piece of cereal box or other thin cardboard and lay on top of the embossing folder on the part that you want and it will only impress where the cardstock when send through the big shot.

If you want a blank spot, lets say in the middle of the embossing then cut a cereal box, thin cardboard to the size of embossing folder and then in the middle of the cardboard cut out the shape (circle, square, rectangle, hexagon). Then when you run it through your big shot the area removed will remain smooth while the rest of the folder will emboss.

Hope that helps you....
