You're My Main Squeeze Card by Jess Francisco Step 1

Step 1: Treat a piece of white A2 size cardstock with anti static powder. Apply embossing ink to the ‘Scaled’ background stamp.

Step 2: Lay your piece of cardstock on the inked background stamp and apply even pressure to transfer the ink to your cardstock. Carefully remove the cardstock from the background stamp.

Step 3: Pour Lemon Drop Speckle embossing powder over the ink while it’s still wet and tap off the excess. You can do this over a scrap piece of paper or a coffee filter so you can easily pour the extra back into the jar. Melt the embossing powder with a heat tool.

Step 4: Repeat the embossing process with the ‘you’re my main squeeze’ sentiment on black cardstock. Use a paper trimmer to trim down the sentiment.

Step 6: Apply Shooting Star dye ink directly to an acrylic block or craft sheet. Use a paint brush to pick up the ink and paint it onto the stamped cardstock. For a lighter color, spritz a little water on the ink before picking it up with the brush.
