How To Guide - Step 1

Place the white card, trimmed to 5 1/2 x 4", inside the embossing folder and run it through your machine. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Use your alcohol pens to colour in the DEBOSSED image. Place a sheet of copy paper underneath to avoid damaging your worksurface from the ink that bleeds through the card. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Begin by lightly rubbing your Izink Reglisse ink pad over your card and debossed image. You can go back in adding more ink, to get the effect you require. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Splatter your artwork with water, wait a few seconds then mop up the ink with a paper towel. 

At this stage you can keep adding more ink, splatter more water, until you achieve the desired effect.

Dry your finished artwork with a heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 5

Lightly apply the Gold Gilding wax to random areas of your embossed image, then buff with a soft, dry cloth, to bring out the shine. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Apply the Gilding Wax around the edges of the card and again, buff with a cloth. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Remove this metallic effect paper, from the Copper All Surfaces paper pack and trim to 5 3/4 x 4 1/4". 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere your embossed artwork on to the decorative paper and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Tear a panel of vellum as wide as the "Enjoy This Day" sentiment stamp and long enough to lay diagonally across the top right of the card, with a slight overhang. Wipe over with an anti-static bag.

Ink up the stamp with the sticky embossing ink and stamp it in the middle of the vellum. Cover with embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Make sure your heat tool is hot BEFORE setting the powder, to avoid warping the vellum. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Lay the embossed vellum across the top right corner of your artwork, tuck the edges over and secure on the reverse with double-sided tape. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Cut a sheet of double-sided foam and adhere on the reverse of your artwork. Alternatively, you can use individual foam pads. 

Adhere on the front of your kraft card blank to finish.
