How To Use Cuttlebug Embossing Folders With The Grand Calibur!

I have had numerous questions about the use of Provo Craft Cuttlebug Embossing Folders with the Spellbinders Grand Calibur! I decided to post your answer on our Blog today!

Start with the A Base Plate on the bottom. Place the folder (with cardstock inside) on top of the A Base Plate and cover with the Tan Embossing Mat then the W-025 Raspberry Spacer Plate (otherwise known as the Sizzix Original Cut Mat). Insert into the front of the Grand Calibur. Turn the handle until the sandwich exits at the back of the machine!

Since the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders are the same thickness as Quickutz Embossing Folders and Sizzix Textured Impressions, they should all work in the Grand Calibur the same! The only exceptions may be the 12″ folders. You may have to run them through twice in order to get the whole thing.

REMEMBER to NEVER force anything through your Machine!

Now you can use your Grand Calibur Machine and CB Embossing Folders to emboss those special cards for Mother’s Day!

Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!

    I must be doing something wrong. I followed your instructions regarding the cuttlebug embossing folder in the Grand Calibur machine and I couldn’t get it to go through without forcing it, which I did not do. Is there a special way to put the folder in? Or, should I just not try at all. I’m disappointed because I really like the pattern on the folder. Any suggestions?

  • Did you use either the GC-003 Grand Raspberry Plate or W-025 Sizzix Original Cut Mat with the A Base Plate and Tan Embossing Mat? You were right in not forcing, however, it may need a nudge to get started through the machine. You may have to play with thickness if you have a thicker material in the folder, but normally the formula given is correct as I have used it in my personal machine.

    Response to Yvette Sparks: I had the same problem, Yvette. You need to purchase a raspberry spacer from Spellbinders. I have the 8 1/2 in. by 12 in. It costs about $13 plus shipping from the Spellbinder’s website. This spacer is thinner than the spacer that comes with the Spellbinder machine. Place in this order: Spellbinder’s Grand Calibur base plate, embossing folder with paper inside, tan mat, and raspberry spacer on top. Everything goes through without a problem. The embossing is great! Let me know if it works.
