If I want to make holes in the paper with the Arrow and Single Needle tools, I use this medium-weight paper. Very heavy vellum like the material that is used for Pergamano® parchment craft cannot be embossed. It is just too thick to squish into the holes. Medium weight translucent vellum is pretty easy to find, but watch for quality. There are many vellums of this type that are neither very translucent nor very durable.
