If you viewed my KISS Card from last week, you noticed that I only embossed part of the card. I had a comment on that blog post that I wanted to answer. I think I went so quickly in the video that it may have been hard to tell what I was doing!
Mary Ellen asked:
“Great card! How do you fit your embossing folder with the paper sticking out through the Big Shot? Sometimes the folder is small enough to rotate it 90 degrees but it didn’t appear that you did that in this video?”
Thank you so much for your question, Mary Ellen! I only embossed part of the cardstock layer here. You are right, if I turned my embossing folder sideways, it wouldn’t fit into the Big Shot. The Big Shot opening is 6-1/4″ and the Embossing Folder is 6-3/8″. So the folder is just a tiny bit too big to go through sideways!
I inserted my cardstock so that about 2/3 of it was inside the folder, making sure that the folder and the extra cardstock hanging out of folder was less than 6-1/8″ wide.
If you want to know how to use the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine, view my blog post and video showing you how.
Hope this helps! I always love questions…you know if you are thinking it, at least 10 other people are too, so leave me a comment any time letting me know what is on your mind!
