Use the PrismCut Embossing Tool to make creases, or indents in cardstock and other thin malleable materials. Place the card stock on a surface with some “give” (felt, foam, rubber), so that it allows the back side of the card stock to become indented when pressed from above with the embossing tool. Turning the card over will show elevated/embossed lines where the tool has been used. The embossing tool can also be used to score creases when creating gift boxes where the sides fold up into a box.
To use the embossing tool, simply replace the blade holder with the embossing tool and set your software to use a blade offset and overcut of zero. Next adjust the speed and force to match the needs of the material being embossed. For card stock, a typical embossing speed setting is 200 and a typical value for force is 500.
Note that the tool has two different sized heads allowing you to choose width of the score. Setting software to multiple passes allows a deeper mark.
