Thursday Tool Talk- Dry Embossing on Vellum

I wanted to take a minute to share with you a great tip for embossing vellum.  
This great sample is by Andrea Walford

Here is another sample I found on Google Images- no creator found. 

Our cardstock vellum is found on page 160 item #101856 $7.95 Quantity of 20 sheets 8 1/2" x11"

The beautiful translucent nature of this cardstock makes a beautiful addition to any card or scrapbook page.   I personally love embossed butterflies made of vellum. 

Sometimes, when embossing vellum with an embossing folder, you may find that the pressure is too much for the delicate vellum and it cuts the vellum.  

Here is my solution:  

Multipurpose platform with 2 tabs open
cutting plate
embossing folder with vellum and a piece of paper towel inside
cutting plate

I have heard that a piece of copy paper can replace the paper towel, but I have not tried it yet.
