Ok I got the Anna Griffin Cuttlebug bundle that was on HSN but I've noticed when I use her folders ( no matter what kind of paper I use) the embossing seems to tear through on some of them. Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a solution?

Can you delete a plate when you put the paper in.....which would alleviate some of the pressure on the embossing folder?

Char,

I tried that but then there's not enough compression to emboss. I use Plate A and 2 B plates...with the folder between both B's.

A long time ago, someone on here suggested to me to put a paper towel in with my paper into the folder to keep it from tearing thru to the otherside.

I have had that happen (on my little embossing machine) a few times. I can usually take a little color (paint) and dab on the very tops of those edges. It does help hide it in most cases.

ThumpUp get a Tim Holtz mini mister and slightly mist front and back and emboss before it dries. it works for me. I don't have AG folders or a cuttlebug. I have a big shot and on some of my embossing folders it would tear and I read this tip somewhere and it works for me.

Good Morning,

A lot of times a new embossing folder will cut/tear through the paper when you use it. If you run your fingers over the inside of a new folder you will find many of the edges can be sharp. Try using a thin piece of chipboard inside the new embossing folder and running it through your die cut machine (you may need to due this a couple of times). This will cause those sharp areas to smooth out and you should be able to use your folders without them tearing through your paper. Have a wonderful day! :)

I saw on youtube that someone else had this same problem and they use a piece of vellum inside the folder with the paper they want to emboss and it helps.BigGrin

I use freezer or wax paper. It works well by giving a little extra thickness to prevent tearing, and the wax keeps the papers from sticking together. HTH BigGrin

Freezer paper is a great and I also use parchment paper inside the folder. Sometimes instead of the other B plate, I use a thick piece of chipboard.
Thanks for all the great ideas on preventing tearing.

I quit using my Cuttlebug and only use my vagabond....I have much more control of how much pressure and get very nice embossed pieces.
