I got the Ebosser to make my life easier as turning the Grand Callibur handle played havoc with my neck and shoulder. I had a bad tear years ago so it does play up anyway but using a manual machine reaaly doesn't bode well.
After it promised to cut leather etc, I decided to give it a go. I got spare off cuts of leather at work (lucky girl) and used the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die made by Sizzix.
Cut brilliantly with one pass. Here are a few of the flowers I made.
