To emboss your monogram onto the wedding thank you card, use the monogram stamp with watermark ink, press it down firmly on the paper and then remove it quickly. Sprinkle or shake the thermal embossing powder over the card in the area of the watermark monogram, until it is covered. If you want to remove the excess powder, merely tap on the card and scoop it back into the container of the powder. However, do make sure that you do not leave behind any specks of powder on the other areas of the card (except where it is intended) and brush it off. After you have carried this out, use the heat gun, turn it on and melt the embossing powder, which should take a few minutes to have it ready.

After you have a completed wedding thank you card with the wording written inside, you can proceed to put together your wedding thank you package, which includes the photographs inserted into the thank you card, all included in the envelope. Following this, you can tie your ribbon or string in an appealing manner and finish it off with the ‘Thank You’ tag. Now, you have a beautiful and personal DIY thank you card, ideal to let your guests know how much their presence at your wedding meant to you and your spouse.
