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.
