Lay die-cut Vine w/Leaves on a piece of scratch paper. Using an ink pad and a rubber brayer, completely coat the acrylic Vine w/Leaves with ink. Put one cutting pad and a piece of thin scratch paper onto the Multipurpose Platform. Carefully transfer the acrylic Vine w/Leaves 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 Vine w/Leaves. 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. Ink edges and adhere to card front. Die-cut 3-D Flower out of colored cardstock, assemble, ink and adhere to the front of the card. Embellish with ribbon, pearl and stamped sentiment.
