Ranger and Dreamweaver Stencils showed a technique that I wanted to try. Although I don't have any Dreamweaver stencils, I do have a few jars of Ranger embossing powder and some regular stencils. I used my Xyron to add adhesive to a piece of card stock. Then I soaped the back of the stencil with Ivory soap and put it down on the card stock...soap side down. The next step is to add the evergreen embossing powder. I then lifted the stencil and poured the seafoam white powder on top of everything. The final step is heat embossing it all. Here is my finished card. Since I used an ivy stencil I wanted to keep it simple and masculine.
