embossing with the slice…

Did you know you could use your SLICE die-cutting machine to emboss?!?

It’s really easy – you just replace your cutting blades with embossing blades:

And use an embossing mat instead of a glass cutting mat.  You can buy a kit here:


If you’re a visual learner (like I am) you’ll want to check out this video on the SLICE website:


You can emboss on cardstock, metal sheets, foam, and probably even more! 

Just for fun, here are a few projects I’ve created using the embossing tips:

**I really like to lightly sand over the embossed images to make them POP off the page…but it’s not necessary**

  1. I need to do this more. I have only tried it once.

  2. I have a Slice but have never embossed. I think it's time I try. Thanks for sharing, Wendy Sue!

  3. Wow you have been busy with your creations. Thanks for the tip too!
    Take care
