Cricut Embossing

Hello everyone,
Two weeks has once again gone by in a flash. The technique I used is the Cricut Embossing technique from the Emboss or Die CD. This is a really fast and effective technique that I will most certainly be using again. If you haven't given it a try, I suggest you do. You will not be disappointed! The sentiment stamp is from Club Stamp and one of my favorites. The Cricut cartridge I used is Damask Decor.
If I may, I have a couple of tips for this technique:
     1.) When you remove the cutting housing from your Cricut to turn the needle around, turn the housing dial to the highest setting (which is #6). This will give you you a better impression.
   2.) If you are not pleased with the impression, turn it over and use your embossing stylus to improve it. Place it on a soft mat so that you can get a good embossed look.
That's all for now. I will "see" you again in a few short weeks.
