Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
2. Embossing folder
6. stamp pad
7. brayer (rubber paint roller.)
Step 2: Prepare Your Folder
Trim closely around the design. If you skip this step, the square part of the folder will leave marks on your print.
Step 3: Prepare Your Print Surface.
For best results, take at least 2 or 3 pieces of the paper you are going to print on (I used paper source A2 cards) and tape them to the B plate. This provides a cushion and a deeper impression.
Step 4: Prepare Your Print Plate
Step 5: Ink Your Plate
Step 6: Print!
Put the paper you are going to print on on top of the paper cushion.
Place your inked design face down on the paper.
Run the stack through the cuttlebug. It should roll easily. If it doesn't you might have too much paper stacked underneath.
ALTERNATE OPTIONS FOR MORE PRECISION:
1. Place plastic photo hinges on the bottom B plate to hold your paper and ensure you are placing it in the same place each time.
2. Make a make shift hinge out of tape so that your top plate will close on top of your bottom plate like a book. This will ensure that the top plate is placed in the same spot with each print.
Step 7: Admire Your Work
I've ordered some photopolymer plates to see if I can create custom designs instead of being limited to hideous cuttlebug designs. I'll post a new instructable when I give it a go!
