1. Cut your Night of Navy card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2. Rub your entire card front with your Embossing Buddy. It may leave a fine white layer on top. This is great. This will help the embossing powder stick only to your stamped image.
3. Choose your sentiments. Stamp them in VersaMark ink in the upper left corner and the lower right corner.
~Cover with Gold embossing powder. Remove excess and put back in the container.
~Use your Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder until it is all shiny.
~Repeat this process with the swirls using Silver embossing powder. I just did one swirl at a time including the Heat Tool step. I then did the second swirl.
Your background is done.
