How do I know what sandwich to use for my different embossing folders?
When Stampin' Up!® came out with their new replacement for the Big Shot, the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I had a few questions. Would my old plates fit? How would my embossing folders work?
I hope to answer a few of those questions for you in this video. If you have a question that I didn't cover, please leave it in the comments. If I don't know the answer I will try to find it out for you.
Summary of embossing folder use:
Former 3D embossing folders that say Sizzix & Stampin' Up!®, these are a little thicker than the current Stampin' Up! 3D folders that just say Stampin' Up!® on them.
Sandwich for former 3D (Sizzix) embossing folder:
Big Shot: Base plate, embossing folder with cardstock, 1 clear plate on top.
New Stampin' Cut & Emboss: #1 plate, embossing folder with cardstock & clear plate.
Current Stampin' Up!© 3D Embossing Folders that just have "Stampin' Up!® on them.
Sandwich for this embossing folder:
Big Shot: Base Plate, embossing folder & cardstock, blue adapter plate (no longer available through Stampin' Up! but you may have one in your stash of supplies)
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine: Base Plate, embossing folder with card stock and #4 Specialty Plate that comes with the new machine.
Standard Embossing Folder sandwich The folder shown below is one of the new mini embossing folders for the new Mini Stampin' Cut & Embossing machine but the sandwich is the same for the standard embossing folder.
This embossing folder is the thinnest of the three that I am showing, and like those you might find in JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby or Michaels. like the Darius, Spellbinders, Sizzix or Cricut brands.
