Project Instructions

Step: 1

General Embossing Instructions (Follow after stamp is applied to project.)
Generously sprinkle embossing powder over the image. Pour the excess powder onto a piece of folded paper and return to container. If there re some granules in areas that you don’t want, use a small paintbrush to wipe away.


Step: 2

Using a heat tool, heat the image until the powder melts and turns shiny. Use the end of a paintbrush to hold the circle down to prevent burning your fingers. Hold the heat tool about 6-inches from the paper. Sweep back and forth over the image until you notice the embossing powder melting. Remember that if you heat too close to the cardstock, you can cause the embossing powder or the paper itself to burn.
