Dry Embossed Borders with Creatopia™

by Beate Johns

Add a dry embossed border to your card with Creatopia™ Border Patternz.



  1. Step 1

    Place the Borders Patternz component into your Creatopia™.

    Align cardstock piece with the edge of the tray.

  2. Step 2

    Push cardstock towards the roller and start turning the handle.

  3. Keep guiding cardstock and turning the handle until the entire piece of cardstock has been embossed.

  4. Step 3 (Optional)

    Exchange Border Patternz component with the Cutz component.

    Align cardstock piece and place the acrylic guide over it. Start turning handle while guiding cardstock.

  5. Keep turning the handle and guide your cardstock until the entire piece is cut.

    Sometimes the cardstock veers off a bit at the end. It helps when you hold the cardstock piece straight as it comes out of the back to prevent that.

  6. Step 4

    Your dry embossed and decorative card is now ready to be decorated.

  7. Step 5

    Finish your card.

I am new at this. What is a creatopia machine and how does it differ from the Sissix or the cricut machines?
