Once you have selected your design file, load it into your machine and select “Emboss” from the list of options in the software.

Once you have selected “Emboss”, follow the instructions on screen to adjust any settings as needed (such as blade depth or speed). Then press “Start” and watch as your Silhouette Cameo 3 creates a beautiful raised effect on your material.


Yes, you can indeed emboss using a Silhouette Cameo 3! All you need is an appropriate design file and some patience while adjusting blade depth or speed settings if necessary. With this powerful cutting machine at your fingertips, adding texture and dimension to projects has never been so easy!
