Great tip for avoiding those annoying folder lines when embossing

I put out a plea for help yesterday when I needed to find out how to avoid those ugly folder lines when you emboss with the small border folders and a friend came to the rescue with this video. I tried it and it really works, fantastic! I made my shims with just 200gsm card and made a few until I got the desired thickness.

Embossing



I haven’t used any of my CB embossing folders for ages so made this card using an A2 folder and one of the little square ones which I punched out – also added some straight lines with my scor-pal to one side.
