ColorPlan – Emboss like a BOSS!

We love the look of crisp embossed cardstock and it’s so easy to achieve. To achieve a deep and crisp emboss lightly spray mist the ColorPlan cardstock to soften the paper fibers before inserting into your embossing folder. Then run the paper and embossing folder through your Big Shot or other manual die-cutting machine. It’s that easy. Check out the detail and deep emboss we were able to achieve with no cracking.

We’ve used these pastel ColorPlan colors: Azure Blue, Park Green, and Candy Pink. These colors are available individually and in our Spring ColorPlan assortment.

More details about ColorPlan cardstock can be found on our website.
