Embossing Leather with the Silhouette Curio

In this step-by-step video class we will emboss on leather using the Curio.

Embossing Leather with the Curio Overview

Join me in this step-by-step video course of setting up the Silhouette Curio & Silhouette software to emboss on tooling leather and cut around the design.

Supplies used in this class are:

Silhouette supplies:

  • Silhouette Curio small cutting mat
  • Silhouette Curio Fine Embossing tip (white embossing tool)
  • Silhouette Curio small base with ALL platforms – please double check that you have all the platforms – a 2+2+1 and cutting mat – we will be using all of them
  • Silhouette black ratchet blade - Silhouette America or Amazon - you want to keep a dedicated Leather blade as it will not cut other materials the same after using it on leather

Designs (click on the name to go to the design used):

Other Supplies:

Please note that the Curio retreat projects & class notes have been designed and tested with the designs, fonts, and supplies listed above.

Substituting designs & supplies may not have the same results as those in the class notes. This is especially important for the designs & the tooling leather. Tooling leather can vary by brand in weight and thickness. The only way to know what works is to test it.

Silhouette Secrets+ by EllyMae

My name is EllyMae and I am the owner of Silhouette Secrets+.

I am a wife, mother, and lover of all things wine (as you'll notice in my projects & posts). I won a Silhouette Portrait in 2013 and the first time I used it, I knew I needed the bigger Cameo. At that time, there was not much information out there, but I found what I could and learned by testing & creating things. I love to learn new things that can be done with the Silhouette machines and have turned that into teaching others what I love to do.

I was encouraged by many to start teaching classes and when the TJC Instructor Program was announced in 2016, I signed up. It was one of the best decisions I've made and have met so many great friends & colleagues just because I took a chance. I now teach private lessons & local classes in the Northern Virginia area. I have also had the privilege to be on staff for the Curio Intensive Retreat in June 2017, staff at the All Things Silhouette Conference June 2017, Nov 2017, staff & an instructor at the ATS Conference in Nov 2018, June 2019, November 2019, Virtual ATS 2020, and the instructor at 2 virtual Curio events in 2020. I love to continue expanding my knowledge of what these amazing machines & software can do.

I look forward to sharing the love of Silhouette with all of you and welcome you on this journey!
