I am new to the embossing technique, and I was wondering what the best tool was to use when embossing with a template. Thanks!

You'll want to use a stylus tool, which has a ball on one or both ends that you can use to trace your template and press into the paper. Archiver's has a stylus (along with other tools) inside our McGill Paper Blossoms tool kit, or you can find a couple of different styles at www.archiversannex.com (search "stylus" in the search box). Another great way to dry emboss is to use embossing folders and the Sizzix Texture Boutique. You simply place your paper inside the folder and run it through the machine to emboss a design on your paper. It's so easy, and we have lots of folders to choose from. Hope that helps!
