Create a card base out of colored cardstock. To create the letterpress effect, die-cut the Wreath out of a piece of clear acrylic. Lay die-cut Wreath on a piece of scratch paper. Using an ink pad and a rubber brayer, completely coat the acrylic Wreath with ink. Put one cutting pad and a piece of thin scratch paper onto the Multipurpose Platform. Carefully transfer the acrylic Wreath onto the platform inked side up. Trim a piece of cardstock to fit the card front and place right side down onto the inked acrylic Wreath. Cover the card with the Silicone Rubber and Impressions Pad and run through the Big Shot or BIGkick Machine. Carefully lift pads away from the card. Lift the card straight up from the acrylic piece. Trim edges as desired and adhere to card front. Die-cut the Crest out of colored cardstock. Punch a small hole in the bottom of the Crest and use a jump ring to attach a small jewel. Adhere Crest to the card using foam dots. Die-cut letter out of Vintage Market alphabet and adhere to the Crest. Embellish with pen.
