Step 1: Create a slimline card base out of Stark White Cardstock. Trim the card stock at 7 x 8 ½ and score it at 3 ½. Next, trim another piece measuring 3 ¼ x 8 ¼. This will be used for the front panel of the card.

Step 2: Use Emboss It Clear Ink to ink the Stipple background stamp. Then, place the front panel piece onto the inked stamp and use the roller to apply pressure on the card stock to get the impression of the image. Next, heat emboss it with White Super Fine embossing powder.
