Instructions
Embossed Card Step 1 Step 1: Develop StencilPro™ (PhotoEZ™ may be used - follow appropriate exposure chart) according to directions.
Step 2: Cut cardstock to desired size or use a blank card.
Step 3: Position StencilPro™ Stencil over cardstock, shiny side down, silkscreen side facing up.
Step 4: Scoop paint and spread on squeegee.
 
Embossed Card Step 2 Step 5: Place your thumb and index finger on the stencil to hold it in place. Spread the paint evenly and completely over stencil (the paint should seep through the silkscreen). Lift the stencil slowly, if there is a void carefully lay the stencil down and apply more paint. This can only be done if the stencil has not been completely removed and placing it in the same position. Remove stencil and place in a container of water. Stencil can be rinsed and cleaned later.
 
Embossed Card Step 3 Step 6: Sprinkle embossing powder over wet paint, then tap off excess powder on paper plate. Return excess embossing power to container.
 
Embossed Card Step 4 Step 7: Heat-treat powder with embossing heat gun. Paint with watercolors. Let dry. If the card is warped press between heavy books overnight.
