I have been reading the blogs that show how to emboss with Spellbinders Dies such as Nicole's Blog (linked at www.papertreyink.com). I do not need the dies, but am fascinated with the edges being raised. After thinking about it for awhile, I suddenly realized that my ball roller (purchased at Walmart) over a piece of chipboard from an old cereal box might do the trick. Voila!! Watch for cards I will post in the future.
More details for those asking. Cut the chipboard smaller than the shape you want to emboss. Lay the chipboard under the cardstock and then on the light box or against a window where the sun is shining in. Take your stylus and press and pull it down along the hidden chipboard. This will give you a raised edge on one side and a recessed edge on the other so that you can use which ever side you prefer!
