Napkins may be 2-ply or 3-ply... These were 3-ply napkins but you will only use the top layer since this is the one with the image.
1. Remove the top layer and reserve the bottom 2 layers (I return the bottom 2 layers to my kitchen for use with meals).
2. Glue the entire top layer to cardstock because you need stability while working with the image. Depending on the size of your image, you may have to cut the napkin into 4 sections in order to get your images glued onto the cardstock.
3. After the glue is dry, carefully cut out the image and cover the entire image with VersaMark watermark ink.
4. Coat the entire image with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE), then melt with heat gun. (If desired, repeat this step again for a smoother, glass-like effect... I repeated this step for a total of 3 coats).
5. Design your card with your image.
Note: My Pineapple napkin had a repeat of the Pineapple design on each of the 4 sections mentioned in step 2. After removing my top layer, I glued one of the four sections to my card because I liked the Pineapple background on the napkin. After cutting out my design from one of the other 3 sections and completing steps 3 & 4, I added pop-up dots to the back of my image and applied it to my card. If your napkin has 4 repeats, this method makes 2 cards.
