I collect these beautiful brass templates, but I don’t often use (what have I been thinking!). I only have luck embossing on the white or vanilla cardstock, never colored cardstock–if you’ve figured out how to pressure emboss on dark colored cardstock, please let me know!
If you press wax paper into the grooves before using the Empressor stylus on the light table, embossing goes faster. Adhere Dotto to both sides of brass template so that it does not shift while you are working.
I embossed the “Bundle Up” images in white on the “Holiday Thyme” snowflake printed paper. I am still in CT for the Thanksgiving weekend but look forward to get home to play with my new Winter Mini catalog stamp sets!
