How can I keep my paper from tearing when I trace an embossing stencil?
Before you begin to trace your stencil, rub some wax paper over the card or paper you are going to emboss. This will prevent paper tears and make it easier to trace your stencil. Also, be sure to use a light touch with the embossing tool. There is no need to press down firmly unless you are embossing very heavy cardstock.
