I'm new to embossing, but have purchased a few 5x7 embossing folders. I'm thinking of purchasing this machine. I've read the embossing instructions, but am a little confused. Doesn't the paper go inside the embossing folder? Do I need to cut my embossing folder ? The instructions say:
Insert the base platform
Add your die cut or paper of choice to the top of the Cutting Plate
Place the embossing mat on the top of your die cut or paper
Add embossing plate
Run through the machine by turning the handle
Thanks for any help.
