- The 4-way stylus is great since you can use the large tip for larger areas and the small tip for smaller areas.
- Heat embossing on Pergamano parchment paper is a great way to add color and a greeting to your card.
- The trick to adhering the parchment to the card without the glue showing is to apply the glue (or Zots) to areas that are white and embossed. You can also use Vellum Glue Dots, which do not show.
- With the fold on the top, trim the card to 4”x6” and cover with green texture. Cut the same size out of Pergamano paper. Center the stencil on the parchment and tape the two sides with stencil tape. Flip the paper over so the stencil is on the bottom and place it over the embossing mat. Carefully emboss the complete stencil with the stylus, using the large tip for larger areas and the small tip for the rest. With the large tip, emboss around the outside of the stencil to make a white raised border. Turn over the parchment and remove the stencil. Cut out around the outside of the white line, leaving a 1/16” border.
- Stamp “Peace” inside the rectangle with Versamark and heat emboss using Emerald embossing powder. Place Zots underneath the large white parts of the design and adhere to red texture paper. Cut around, leaving a 1/8” border. Mat again onto gold paper, leaving a 1/16” border. Glue centered onto the green card. Zot a small burgundy grosgrain bow to the bottom left of the greeting.
