When you stamp a card and then emboss the powder with a heat gun is there a way to stop the heat from the gun bending the card out of shape. I can't get it to stay flat, and it looks weird......am I doing something wrong?

Sounds like you could be heating it up for to long or even to close hold the heat gun up above and move it from side to side dont hold it in one place you only need to move it a little just untill that spot is done

Pop the bendy embossed card in it's envelope for 10 minutes or so and it should go back to it's normal flat shape - if not put a heavy book on top of the envelope and that will definitely do the trick :)

Hi I put it straight down, and put something heavy on it. Hope this helps.
