Tips:  Kaleidacolor Ink Pads have an innovative sliding palette that keeps colors from bleeding together.  Before use gently push the white half circle to the right as shown on the photo above. If you are wanting to repeat your colors on a project, use the edge of the ink pad as a guide by lining up the edge of the brayer and rolling across the ink pad – do this each time you want to ink.

2. Insert white cardstock piece (cut to 3¾˝ x 5˝) into the embossing folder and emboss.
