First, figure out a shape or area that you don't want embossed on a card. Cut that out on several layers of this cardboard and glue together. (I used 3 layers of the cardboard that comes with the DSP from Stampin Up).
Next pick your embossing folder and place it where you would like the your resisted space to be and mark edges with a pencil.
Using a temporary adhesive at the corners to allow the embossing folder not to slip. This is great if you are making multiples of the same card, so you will have a consistent result.
Place your embossing folder on marks you did earlier.
Add paper to embossing folder, be sure to make sure it is centered.
You will need to select "Tab 2" on the Big Shot your custom emboss resist folder and one clear plate on top. Run it through the Big Shot.
Here is what it looks like after it has been embossed.
This is a finished monogrammed card I made with this technique.
Here is a quick video where I learned about this emboss resist technique.
I hope you enjoyed this week's tip and be sure to check back tomorrow for our Wednesday Winners.
