How To Guide - Step 1

Spray the Izink Dye inks on to the white card (4 x 2"). 

Splatter water over the wet ink with a paint brush, wait a few seconds and mop up the water and lift the ink, with a paper towel. 

Dry off the ink completely.

Place the S, T and R dies, from the STAR Die Collection, on to the sprayed card and run it through your die cutting machine. 

Set to one side

How To Guide - Step 3

Spray the Izink Butterscotch on to the white card (3 1/2 x 2 1/2"). 

Whilst the ink is wet, use your fingers to randomly sprinkle the Poppin Yellow WOW embossing powder in to the ink. 

Once your heat tool is good and hot, heat set the powder from BELOW the card...this helps stop the powder from blowing off the wet ink.

Place as many of the snowflake dies as you want, from the Festive Penguins Collection, on to the inked, embossed card. Secure with low tack tape and run through your die cutting machine.

Place a ruler across your card, and decide where you want your die cut letters, and Penguin, to be placed.
