Embossed card with Cricut Expression 2

Here is a quick card I did today with the Chomas Creations embossing kit for the Cricut and vellum!  The design I used is one from Cindy Loo. 
I attached the Chomas Creations embossing mat to my Cricut mat (you don't even need a new one, just clean an old mat, add some adhesive, I use Zig 2 way glue, and add your mat to that!)  Then I attached a piece of vellum with adhesive in each cover to the embossing mat.  I set my pressure to 5, or max, the speed to 3 or medium and embossed the design.  I did use a multi cut of 2.
 I added the Chomas Creations embossing tip into the Expression 2 (it fits in the entire line of Cricut machines though!) and tightened the screw.  No other parts needed, the embossing tip fits right into the machine.

I did cut out a window in my card for the vellum to sit in.  I just used my paper trimmer for this as I said I was going for quick! 

 
Want the same look using the Cameo?   Use a stylus in the Chomas Creations adjustable pen holder and use an embossing mat.

Are saying you can use the embossing kit with the silhouette to emboss? Love your stuff and thanks for sharing your amazing creativity.

Taslima you can use the embossing mat and the adjustable pen holder for the Silhouette with a stylus to do the same thing. Yes!

Even on regular cardstock? I thought I saw where you said that the cameo did not produce enough pressure to emboss. Oh please, oh please tell me it will work. I have been wanting your products, but was holding out on the embossing thing. :-)

Taslima that is vellum that I embossed on. The machine does not have the power to emboss on thick cardstock, I'm sorry!
