--Cut all Cardstock pieces per list.
--Use a Stampin' Spritzer filled with Water & spray the Watercolor paper.

--When dry,  you can do the heat embossing.  First dust the card with powder from the Embossing Buddy, then stamp the trees and sentiment in Versamark ink.
--Sprinkle on the White embossing powder. Then use the Heat Tool to melt the embossing powder.  Let it cool.
--Optional - Then I trimmed the watercolor mat to 4"x6" as sometimes the edges of the card fray from all the water. Trimmed the GAG mat as well to 4-1/2"-6/1/2".
--Optional - I sprayed the top mat with Shimmer Spray* to give the card some sparkle and shine.  Let it dry completely.
