Tutorial & Sandwich for Using Embossing Folders (Papermania, Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Crafts Too etc in the Cuttlebug Machine

This tutorial is for Cuttlebug users and uses the plates that should come with your machine to emboss all brands of embossing folders
You will need:
Cuttlebug Machine
A Plate
2x B Plate
Embossing Folder
Card / Paper

The sandwich is as follows (from bottom to top - as you would build it)
A Plate

Add B Plate

You then need to place you card or paper in your embossing folder, which way up you place your card in the folder depends on wether you will get an embossed or debossed image. The general rule is that if you have the logo of the folder facing up and the front of your card facing up then you will get an embossed image but there are a couple of exceptions to this, there is a cuttlebug winter words folder that only debosses!

pop your embossing folder with card inside onto the sandwich

Add the other B Plate - and make sure that all layers are in line with each other like in the pic below

Sandwich re-cap (starting from the bottom)
