Step 2: Using the Studio Paint, enhance the raised surface of the embossed Foil Sheet and set aside to dry.  Ink the edge of the canvas trading card with Archival Ink and the edge of the Kraft artist trading card with Distress Stain.  Attach the painted, embossed foil to the trading cards.

Step 3: Cut the Invisibles cardstock to size (I used 5 x 7) and cover with the Distress Stain.  The varnished areas of the cardstock will resist the stain.  Attach these to pre-made card forms.

Step 4: Add ribbon and baker's twine to the cards then adhere the trading cards.  I left an area to put a sentiment later when I decide who or what occasion I will use these cards for
