Embossing a straight line without a score board

I've had so much interest on my embossing tip from yesterday here .. thank you so much .... BIG SMILE :D ... that I was suggested to upload some photos to explain myself better.. so here goes..........

This is the CD Box that I used.

You will use the groove on the inside of the CD box and of course you need an embossing tool.


Place the card right-side facing down as in the picture,  holding it tight. Start embossing the line..

........ slowly and lightly at first until you find the groove ... embossing down til the end.

When you do all the line you can go back up and down for a second or third time until the line is raised enough.

Repeat this for all sides.

Here is my card again which I did using this method to emboss a straight line.



Hope you like it and find it useful.

Thank you for looking today.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday
