The tan embossing mats are perfect. In order to emboss after using the spellbinders die cuts, you need the tan mat which is soft not hard. It works perfectly as a layer in the sandwich to emboss the paper that has been die cut. The embossed edge puts a professional touch on the die cut paper. Very easy to use.
Love all the Spellbinders - Nestabilities.. They work great with the Cuttlebug Machine. No need to buy another machine if you already have a Cuttlebug. Very easy to use. You will need to buy these mats for the embossing of the Nestabilities. Doing the embossing along with the die cut really makes the project your working on pop!..
I bought these mats to use with my Fiskars embossing plaques in my cuttlebug embossing machine after seeing a youtube video about this.
Before having the mats I couldn't use the plaques with the cuttlebug and now I am able to do so. I love how the embossing comes out now.
I didn't know I needed this when I purchased my spellbinders dies. But I have it now and I love it. Now I can emboss with all my spellbinders die. I will be purchasing more dies now.
I have wanted Nestabilities for a while now & this makes it the set complete! You NEED this to emboss! They have lots of nesting dies to choose from! All shapes & sizes! My list gets longer by the day! =) But if you like the finished look?... be sure & grab these mats!
