Okay, here is a way to eliminate the crease lines from the embossing folders. This will work for ANY size folder.

You need a sheet of rubber from Lowes called Rubber Packing Sheet. It measures 6" x 6" x 1/8" and costs 1.37 each.

I am sure Home Depot has it too. It needs to be 1/8" thick. It is in the plumbing dept. You can also use 1/16" rubber sheet and the C PLATE, if you can*t find the 1/8".

1. Cut the rubber sheet slightly shorter and slightly less wide than the folder. The cut rubber sheet will redistribute the pressure to the middle of the folder where the design is, and take it away from the edges where the crease lines are created using just the folder in the cuttlebug.

2. Stick that cut piece of rubber to the folder with glue dots or double stick tape
