How To Guide - Step 1

Wipe over the white, landscape card, cut to 6 1/2 x 4 1/4", with an anti-static bag. 

Ink up City Streets with the WOW sticky embossing ink pad and stamp on to the card.

Apply the white embossing powder over your sticky image, then once your heat tool is hot, heat set the powder. Ensure you move the heat tool as soon as the powder turns, as this will reduce warping the card or burning the powder.
