Claims(1)
  1. We claim the ornamental design for embossed tissue, as shown and described.
Description

FIG. 1 is a top plan view of an embossed tissue showing our new design. The bottom plan view forms no part of the claimed design; and,

FIG. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary cross-sectional view along line 2--2 of FIG. 1.

The surfaces or portions of the article not shown in the drawing or described in the specification form no part of the claimed design.

The embossed tissue is shown broken away on each of its four sides to indicate indeterminate length and width. The broken lines in FIG. 1 represent one repeat unit of the claimed design, which is understood to repeat uniformly throughout the length and width of the embossed tissue. The broken lines form no part of the claim.
