Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Jennifer asks: "I’ve been given the opportunity to make some wedding invitations for a friend's small ceremony. I want to use vellum in my dry embossing folders but the vellum is cracking and tearing. Suggestions?"
A: Do you have a silicone embossing pad? Lay down the pad (craft foam might work too), then the vellum, and then lay the embossing folder open on top of the paper and run it through the machine. You'll need to shim to get the right pressure. You can also try layering the vellum with cardstock in the folder, or maybe between two pieces of paper. Play around with what you have to see what works.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Betty has a tip for the Pop-Up Flip Card: "Great tutorial. I would use repositionable tape for those patterned pieces before the circle is cut, then put them back on with permanent adhesive after cutting the circle."
