How To Guide - Step 1

Choose your design from the Dusk paper pack. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Wipe the Black Soot ink pad over the debossed side of the Autumn embossing folder and spritz lightly with water. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Place the printed paper inside the inked folder so the leaves are coming on to the top left corner. Run it through your embossing machine. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Blend the Black Soot around the top left corner of the paper. Use your paint brush to add ink under the outer edges of the embossed image, making it "pop" from the paper. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Randomly apply the Gold gilding wax on the raised, embossed areas of the design. Buff with a soft cloth to enhance the shine. 

Tip: When applying gilding wax, use the pad of your middle/ring finger and start off lightly. You can always add more wax but you cannot remove it!!

How To Guide - Step 6

Add the gilding wax around the edges of your paper and again, buff with a soft cloth. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Stamp your sentiment with Midnight, where required. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Finally mat your artwork on to black card cut to 5 1/2 x 7 1/2" and then on to the front of your Fushia card blank.
