A New Technique to Share – Cuttlebug Circular Embossing Tutorial

How many of you purchased those small Cuttlebug embossing folders and then were disappointed that their use was limited?  Yeah, me too.  It seems that you couldn’t really bite in far enough to get the image where you wanted it and some of them have an orientation that limits their use as well.  I’ve been toying around with the templates and came up with a slightly different way to use them that allows you to get around some of those limitations.   Here’s one of my first samples:

Here is a closer look . . .

In a nutshell what I did was figure out how to do circular embossing.  By placing a hole in the center of the paper and inserting my template into the hole, I was able to pivot around the circle from the inside and emboss in enough locations to fill in my circle and make a complete background.  Once finished, I was able to camoflage the opening with my stamped sentiment.  I played around with varying the number of embossed images on each circle and found you can do as few as four and as many as eight.

For this card, after I finished the embossing I colored the image with chalks and embellished with pearls.  I cut a scalloped border and chopped up the border in order to fit it around the circle.  I cut a Nestability scalloped square and a Nestability square with my sentiment to cover the hole used for embossing.  The cute little feature of the three pearls sitting on the ribbon is a great idea I snagged from my friend Janine of 2BKrafty – you can see the card she made here where she floored me with that idea.  Here is a diagram showing how  I tackled this card.

Step 1

Cut a large circle about 5½” in diameter.  I used my EK Success Circle Cutter, but you could easily cut one by hand using a plate as a template.  Using the second smallest circle from the Nestabilities Petite Scallop Circle Large Set, cut a circle in the center of your paper.

Step 2

Note the eight locations with arrows.  I embossed at each of these locations with one of the Fancy Corners Small Embossing Folders.  The joint of the folder is placed on the inside of the circle and then the folder is pivoted through to embossing at each of the noted arrows.  On this particular folder there was some overlap so as I embossed, my current embossing smashed part of what I had already embossed.   I didn’t really worry about it.   This will vary depending on which template you use – some will look good overlapped and others will not.

Step 3

Complete the embossing then leave plain for texture or color as you will!



You don’t have to start out with  circle, it can be a square as with my card from yesterday.

Here’s how I did circular embossing on the Cuttlebug to make the background for this card:

Using the same Nestability circle, I cut out the center of my paper which measures 5½”.x5½”  On this particular card I embossed four positions to start out with – North, South, East and West with the joined edge of the template on the inside.  Then I embossed on each corner with the joined edge of the template on the outside with the arrow showing where the join should be positioned.

I hope this gives you many ideas on how to stretch your templates!  If you share this idea, I would appreciate a link to this post so that folks can see exactly how to work through the embossing step.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

    Good afternoon, Becca – thank you so much for such a superb tutorial. I have quite a few of these small folders and have to confess I rarely use them because of their (I assumed) limited use – not any more! I absolutely love how you always think outside the box. This tutorial will now add another technique to my crafting armoury.
    Now may I ask, pretty please, if we might also have a tutorial on how you used the Word Window Punch to such great effect on your card of 28 August ?- absolutely awesome- and I still can’t figure out where the folds would be (if there are any) – Many, many thanks.ReplyCancel

You truly are a inspirational and talented and amazing woman. Praise the Lord for him giving you so much talent and helping us less talented ones try to be as creative as you!

    I have these little embossing folders and haven’t even attempted to use them yet. Now, when I get around to it, you have given me great way to use them.
