  2. Create a “sandwich” to emboss foil board using Wizard Machine. To make a “sandwich” stack from bottom to top as follows: emboss plate, embossing template, foil board {face up}, embossing mat, and cut plate. Follow manufacturer directions if using another die-cut machine.
  3. Run “sandwich” through the machine to emboss the foil board.
  4. Trim foil board close around the embossed border.
  5. Score foil board at ½” across both short sides to form tabs.

  7. Cut 2 pieces of vellum in your choice of color measuring 5 1/4″ X 4″. —-Repeat the following steps for both of the foil board and vellum pieces:
  8. Apply strips of double-sided tape around edges of backside of foil board, applying just outside scored tabs at sides and avoiding holes. Place pieces of double-sided tape between any holes along the sides.
  9. Remove backing tape and adhere the vellum to the foil board.
  10. Score piece at 2 7/8” down center of the shorter side. Be careful when scoring if there are holes along the line; score lightly to avoid breaking through the vellum.

  12. Fold in half along the scoreline and crease with a bone folder.
  13. Apply double-sided tape to tabs – foil side up – on both sides of ONE of the foil board pieces.
