How To Guide - Step 1

Spray the Izink Butterscotch on to your craft mat, spritz with water and pick up the ink on to the white card cut to 7 x 5". 

Repeat with the Izink Misty Morning, then dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up this floral stamp from the Beautiful Buttercup Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp off the right hand edge of your inked background, as seen here. Dry your stamped image before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Using your paint brush and clear water (or diluted bleach), apply water in to each of the petals, wait a few seconds then "lift" out the ink with a paper towel. Repeat this as many times as required to achieve the effect you want. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Once your artwork is dry, place it inside the Blossom Bunch embossing folder, so the raised, embossed image is on the bottom. You want the embossed design to be on the left side of your background, slightly overlapping on to your stamped image, as shown here. 

Place this on to your embossing plates so the edge of the folder that's positioned over the stamped image, hangs off the edge of the embossing plates....this avoids getting a "line/crease" in your artwork, when you run it through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Rub over your embossed image with your sanding block/sandpaper, to lift the ink. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Swipe your Izink Metal Gold Embossing ink pad gently over the raised embossed design. 

Dry the ink, as it is slow drying and you need it to be dry before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Using your ring finger (to achieve a lighter touch), apply the Gold Gilding Wax to random areas of the embossed design. 

Buff over the wax with a soft cloth, to bring out the shine. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere to the front of your black, top folding card blank.

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere the sentiment on to the black card (3 x 2"), then trim as required. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, adhere the sentiment in the bottom right corner of your card, with foam pads.
