Picture of Paper Embossing
This is a very easy technique that everybody can use at home with very simple tools, you can use it for your greeting cards!

Step 1: Tools

Picture of Tools
You need:
  • Exacto knife;
  • Stylus with round point or anything with a round point (actually my knife becomes a stylus chaging its point);
  • Cutting mat (optional, you can use an old newspaper);
  • Light table (optional, you can use a window).
Super easy to find tools!

You are very generous with your education and creativity, thank you!! nat

It was a really nice tutorial. What other alternative do I have for the stylus? Will a ear-cleaner with a soft cotton plugged on its tip work for this?

Any other precautions?

Cool, my utility knife has one of those stylus thingies now I know what to do with it!
The end result looks great, and so easy to do. I wonder, would it work do to more "layers?" I don't know whether I can express what I mean properly, but imagine embossing a large square, then empossing some text inside the square.

Thank you! I thought about that and I wanted to try but have not had the time to do it yet. I was actually thinking of making also the letters in two layers somehow. I will try and let you know!
