How To Guide - Step 1

Remove this decorative paper from the Winter Solstice paper pack and trim to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4", ensuring the trees are the right way up when placed in landscape view.

Set the leftover paper to one side, as you will need this later. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Tear a strip of vellum 7 1/2" in length and using your "forest" stamp as a guide, as wide as you require. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Lay the torn vellum across the lower half of your decorative paper. Tuck the edges over the sides of the paper and secure on the back with double sided tape or a tape runner. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Liberally wipe the paper and vellum with your anti-static bag. 

Ink up the "trees" stamp with the sticky embossing ink pad and stamp coming up from the bottom right. You will need to apply extra pressure where the paper meets the vellum, to get a clear, detailed image.

Apply the Gold embossing powder over your stamped image, before heat setting with your heat tool. Ensure your heat tool is hot before you start and move it as soon as the powder starts to turn, to avoid burning or warping the vellum/paper. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Wipe the leftover decorative paper you set aside earlier, with your anti-static bag. Ink up "Joyeux Noel" with the sticky embossing ink and stamp on to the paper. Cover with the Gold embossing powder and heat set as before. Trim down the embossed sentiment.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere the embossed sentiment on to a piece of white card and trim to create a "mat". 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere your embossed artwork on to the front of your white, landscape card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Finally, adhere the sentiment with foam pads, to the top left of your card.
