Step 1

The first thing you'll do is get a thin double sided tape. You can use something slightly thicker than what I have here, but having it very nice and thin is ideal.

If you don't have one this thin, you can just split your regular-sized tape in half with a scissor.

Step 2

Now, I have my card here which is almost finished. I just carefully started placing my double sided tape around my sentiment to form a rectangle shape. Press it hard into the card to ensure that it is stuck down.

Don't rush it! Make sure you align it straight so it won't appear wonky.

Step 3

Once you complete your box shape with your tape, you can start removing the top white part to expose the adhesive.

Step 4

And now the fun part! Let's start embossing! I'm using a gold embossing powder for this one. Just sprinkle some powder on top of the adhesive. Make sure you cover everything to fill the box shape.

Step 5

Remove the excess powder and dry with a heat tool.
