Embossing with the Crop-a-Dile

Did you know you can do some embossing with the Crop-A-Dile??  Recently I was working on a project with the new Carousel Notes in the Occasions Mini on page 7.  You can use the Pick a Petal Brass Template on page 187 to emboss the scallops of the Carousel Notes, and I had ordered one, but hadn’t received it yet.  Since I really liked the look of those little dots on each scallop I decided to just use my Crop-A-Dile.  I just eyeballed it, but you could precisely put a pencil dot where you wanted the dot at the center of each scallop.  Then just use the CAD (Crop-A-dile) as if you are setting an eyelet, but do not push all the way.  I used the A-1 setting with the little sticking-out-thing on the top of the cardstock.  You can find the Crop-A-Dile on page 189 of the Stampin’ Up! catalog.  Do you have one?  It is really a neat tool, especially for setting eyelets easily and also for punching holes.  If you "need" one, just email me!
