I tell you, I'm overwhelmed with all of the things out there in the world of crafting! I now have a new cuttlebug v2 and I picked up a couple of the Darice embossing folders that are on sale for 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby. I want to make a birthday card and my plan is to emboss the entire front with the Happy Birthday folder on a half fold card, or 5.5" x 4.25". I feel so dumb! How do you emboss an area that is larger than the folder? I need to know the most SIMPLE way of doing this so I won't get frustrated from the get-go! Need to line it up kinda the same way you do with patterned wallpaper? HELP!

tia,
Andrea

I never have much luck embossing an area that is larger than the folder. I always mess it up, ruining the cardstock. What I do is cut a piece of cardstock the same size as the folder and emboss it. I then layer that either directly on my card front, or layer it on another piece (different color) of cardstock before layering it on the card front. That result can be very pretty.

Sorry I can't be of any real help.

Well, thank you for that little tidbit! When you're totally brand new at something, everything helps! I will do that for now, then try to learn another method with time....maybe look on youtube. thanks!
