Thanks Mary, what a brilliant idea.
I make cards and when I emboss any (I have a lovely machine) the tip is to wipe over the card first with a fabric conditioner sheet. Moistens the fibres on the card and gives a better embossed image. Of course the scent on the conditioner sheet lingers for a while on the card.
