How To Make Embossed Note Cards

HOW TO MAKE EMBOSSED NOTE CARDS
I love note cards and stationary, especially embossed note cards. It’s always nice to have a set of cards with a decorative element close by to jot something down on. It is also very easy to make your own embossed note cards, plus saves you some extra spending money in the long run if you constantly use them like I do. A little embossment and a decorative element can add a touch of elegance to any note! Here is a step-by-step on how to make your very own embossed note cards!
Items Needed:
Ink Pad {Click Here}
Embossing Powder {Click Here}
Note Cards – you can either buy a set of plain note cards or cut normal paper down to note card size {Click Here}
Heat Tool {Click Here}
Step 1: Press stamp in to ink pad, make sure stamp is evenly covered in ink
Step 2: Line stamp up on paper and firmly press down then lift back up
Step 3: Sprinkle embossing powder over the freshly wet ink; make sure wet ink is fully cover by embossing powder
Step 4: Shake off left over embossing powder. I usually shake my embossing powder on to an index card so I can reuse it or pour it back in its container. I also place saran warp down over the area I am going to work on to make for an easy clean up!
Step 5: Place Heat Tool over embossing powder for a few seconds. The Heat Tool will make the powder rise and add a little shimmer and depth. 
The Finished Product: A Beautiful Embossed Note Card!
