How To Guide - Step 1

Cut a piece of white card slightly bigger than the stencils in the Alice collection. Place stencil 1 on the card and use a blending tool to apply the Limeade ink. Position stencil 2 over your stencilled image and blend with the Hedgerow and finally blend Tiffany through stencil 3. 

Ensure the ink is thoroughly dry before moving to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Wipe all over your stencilled card with an anti-static bag, ensuring there is no moisture left. 

Place stencil 4 in position, over your stencilled frame and ink through the stencil with your WOW sticky embossing ink pad. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Apply Gold embossing powder over your sticky image, tipping any excess powder back in the pot. Get your heat tool nice and hot, before heat setting the powder. Ensure you move your heat tool as soon as the powder turns, as this will help minimise the warping of your card. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Place the coordinating die over your stencilled frame and run it through your die cutting machine. Set your die cut frame to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink the back of the gown Alice stamp, with your no-line ink pad. Using your die cut frame as a guide, stamp so she will sit slightly right, of the centre of the frame, on the front of your white card blank.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere the frame over your stamped reflection flat, with wet glue and set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Cut a piece of white card bigger than your Alice stamp and wipe over with your anti-static bag. 

Ink the Alice stamp with the WOW sticky embossing ink and stamp on to the card. Apply the Gold embossing powder and heat set, as before.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Paint your embossed image with your inks and a paint brush. I used Tattered Rose for the skin, Heather for the hair and Sherbet and Bittersweet for the gown. Pop to one side to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Using these dies from the Tied With Love Die Collection, cut the detailed bow in white card and the bow "mat" in Gold mirri card. Adhere the detailed bow on top of the mat, applying wet glue to the centre of the bow only, allowing for movement of the bow loops and tails. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere to the top centre of the frame, with a little foam pad just in the centre of the bow. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Use foam pads to adhere Alice to the right of her reflection, as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Cut a piece of card bigger than the "Amazing You" stamp and die, from the Saying Hello Collection. Wipe the card with your anti-static bag, before inking and stamping the sentiment with the WOW sticky embossing ink. Cover with the Gold embossing powder and heat set. 

Use the coordinating "mat" solid die, to cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Adhere your die cut sentiment to the left of Alice, with foam pads. 

How To Guide - Step 14

To finish your card, add sequins where required.
