 Step 1

Take a piece of glossy cardstock and rub with the embossing buddy to avoid the static of the paper. Ink glossy paper using Versamark. Press the inkpad directly over the card stock to cover the whole surface. Cover the inked surface with Candy Green Embossing Powder and melt with the heat tool. You may need a second layer of embossing to create a uniform look.

 Step 2

Ink background stamp with Versamark. Stamp background over the embossed piece. For larger stamps, I preferred to stamp in opposite way and press the paper with my hands over the stamps.
