The Crafter’s Companion - Dry Embossed Edge

by Beate Johns

Add a dry embossed edge to your card with The Crafter's Companion.



  1. Step 1

    Line up the bottom edge of your card front over a decorative edge of your choice.

  2. Step 2

    Place wax paper over your cardstock.

    The wax paper will help the scoring tool easily glide over the cardstock.

  3. Step 3

    Place your scoring tool tip into the scoring groove and start embossing.

  4. Dry emboss the entire strip.

  5. Step 4 (Optional)

    To make the embossed line deeper, go over it again, this time without the wax paper.

  6. Step 5

    For a double embossed edge, slide your cardstock a bit up or down.

  7. Score a second line an equal distance away from the first one.

  8. Step 6

    Turn cardstock around.

  9. Cut around your embossed edge.

  10. Step 7

    Finish your card.

I saw this demo-ed at a recent show, but didn't know how much I would use it. After seeing this, I might need to pick it up...or ask Santa for it. I wonder if they will be at the show in Madison this weekend?

Another option is to use soap if you don't have wax paper available. When this product first came out (many years ago) the demonstrator suggested using soap.... glide soap along the area of your paper you want to emboss. It works. I keep a bar of soap in the compartment of the crafter's companion for embossing.
Best, MJ
