How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the debossed side of the QuattroD Peonies embossing folder, with the Izink Dye ink pads, using the Miel around the centre and the Reglisse around the outside, as shown here. 

Spritz with water. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the white card, measuring 6 1/2 x 4 1/2", inside the embossing folder and run it through your embossing machine.

Mop up any excess ink and blast with your heat tool. 

Set it to one side.

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the middle-sized floral "F" stamp, from the Friends For Life Stamp And Die Collection, with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and stamp on to the super smooth 3 x 3" white card. 

Place a scrap piece of paper or card underneath, then colour in your stamped image using your Gossip alcohol pens. Alcohol ink bleeds through your card, hence the need to put copy paper, or scrap card underneath, to protect your work surface. 

Use the coordinating die to cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Fold your panel of vellum over the bottom of your embossed artwork and using your die cut floral "F" as a guide, decide where you want the add-on sentiment stamp to be positioned, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Wipe over your vellum with the anti-static bag, before inking up your sentiment stamp with the WOW embossing ink. Stamp in position on to the vellum.

Apply the white embossing powder over your sticky sentiment then, having got your heat tool hot first, heat set the powder. Ensure you move the heat tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, to avoid burning the powder and warping your vellum. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Place your embossed vellum panel back over your embossed image and secure on the reverse of the card with double sided tape, or a tape runner. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere on to the black card. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere on to the front of your kraft card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 9

To finish, adhere your die cut floral "F" element in place, with foam pads.
