how to emboss...incredibly simple. Note from Jacque: The only thing I would clarify is to buy pigment ink for embossing. Dye based ink is for stamping without embossing. Pigment ink will not dry on its own - it must be covered in powder and heat embossed. This technique works well when you want to color in with markers or watercolors.
simple embossing: cut the shape you want out of thick cardstock with an exacto knife, place the paper you want to emboss over the cardstock with a hole in it, and use a bone folder or the tip of large knitting needles or of a small crochet hook to rub the paper into the hole in the cardstock.
