Thanks for this--looks easy enough! And no, it's not just you. Why SU made the folder going that way I will never understand!

Love it! Great tutorial!

That's what I needed! Thank you.

Thank you! I have a few folders that I have not used for landscape cards for that very reason. Now I can.

Sweet idea! Thanks for sharing. We have been wondering and frustrated how to get it going the way we want with having to cut the EF on the end so that it fit through the Big Shot. Thank you Thank you!

Great idea, from OCD me! I never use folders like that in the opposite direction for the same reason as you. Thanks!

Great idea, I will need to try this technique the next time I emboss.

Thanks! I've run into this same issue but hadn't thought of a solution on than changing my design!

Many thanks for sharing this. Great idea! Will be trying this out later.

You read my mind! I have been wondering if this was possible recently. Thank you very much!!

Super! I've actually avoided purchase of embossing folders if I didn't like the direction!

Wonderful. I'm looking at my folders in a whole new light. Thank You so much!

I see the folder was Sizzix. When u embossed the blank piece of the paper how did u insert it into the embossing folder?

This is great! I agree, I feel like some folders are definitely "directional." One question - I don't have the Big Shot, just the texture boutique. Do you know whether it can be done on that since the platform isn't as wide? Thanks!

Great idea.
Thank you for sharing.

Very clever. You are right! I have that folder , too & it IS directional.
Thanks for the tip

Lovely idea.

Thank you for sharing that was just the tip I was looking for.

I have that same disorder! It was facing the wrong way to me, too! Now I can use it on my portrait cards (the kind I make most often) and I'll even use it with the non embossed top portion and just put some DSP over that part. So cool! Why didn't I think of it! TFS!

This a forehead slapping, well duh moment. thanks for sharing what should have been such an obvious and easy solution, but wasn't.

Unfortunately this only works for embossing folders with an all over pattern. I have several folders with floral motifs and there's no way that I can figure out, to line up the pattern for the second run.


Thanks for sharing for I would have never thought of changing the orientation of the folder. Thanks again!

Thank you for that tip, I also think that there are lots of embossing folders that should be hinged on the opposite end , especially the small ones with a corner design, it would enable a larger card than an a6 to be made, I really do not think enough thought is put into how they are going to be used and probably not designed by someone who actually crafts !!

I have the texture boutique too and I don't think we have a large enough opening to put the cards in like that. Any ideas?

Thank you,
