How To Guide - Step 1

Place stencil 1 from the Magnolia Garden Collection, on top of the 6" square white card and blend the Sherbet through the stencil, with your blending tool. 

Line up stencil 2 and blend with the Bittersweet. Having lined up stencil 3, lightly blend with the Limeade and finally apply Limeade but with more pressure, through stencil 4. 

Use your heat tool to thoroughly dry the ink, before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Wipe your anti-static bag over your stencilled frame, before inking up the first stamp, from the Collection, with the WOW sticky embossing ink. Line up and stamp in position, then repeat with the second stamp. 

Cover your stamped image with the WOW Gold embossing powder, decanting any excess powder back in the tub. 

Get your heat tool hot before heat setting the powder. Move your heat tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, to avoid warping your card or burning the powder.

How To Guide - Step 9

Cut a piece of white card, big enough to stamp the Saying Hello sentiment on to. Wipe it over with your anti-static bag before inking up the stamp with the WOW sticky embossing ink. Apply the gold embossing powder and heat set as before. 

Place the coordinating die over your embossed sentiment and place on your die cutting plates. Place the layering sentiment die on the piece of the textured paper, set aside earlier and run both through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere the die cut sentiment on to the die cut mat, then adhere with foam pads to the bottom left of your card.
