I always joke that I don’t have my own manufacturing company, and would love to so that I could make embossing folders, dies and rubber stamps to my heart’s content. The reality is, of course, that it isn’t likely that will ever happen and so I make do with whatever I can do on my own 😉 . So this week’s post is an experiment that resulted in a cool way to make my own embossing plate from one of my stencils that I cut on my digital cutter.
Using a Sign that I bought at the hardware store, I cut it down and used Gel Medium/Modeling Paste through a stencil to create the embossing plate. Then I used the correct “sandwich” in my Sissix Big Shot die cutter to in order to emboss.
Here’s the video to show how I made the plate and how to use it-
Here is a link to a post where I used on of these embossing plates for an embossed metal card.
