How to use an Embossing Folder widthwise

So I was asked recently how to use the heart block folder on a wider piece of cardstock. My pictures aren't the greatest! The piece I used is 4 1/8" x 8 1/4"

I line the paper up below the top, you may have noticed that the heart blocks aren't perfectly straight, so you have to start lower to line them up properly.

I use the cuttlebug, and from bottom stack Plate A, plate B, embossing folder with cardstock, then another B plate.

Now take it out & try to place it along the edge so the pattern carries on.

Run it through again, & voila! It may not always look perfect, but once you add the rest of your elements, only you will notice it!
