Lay the Baja Breeze 5 ¼” x 4” cardstock panel on top of the Bella Toile Stamp and use a piece of scratch paper over top and rub the stamp with the heels of your palms.

Put a piece of scrap Baja Breeze Cardstock inside the Embosslit.

Run the Embosslit through the Bigshot.

Option A pictured above- Use the flower with the embossed raised side down and color the negative space white with a white gel pen or Option B- use the flower with the raided side up and sand until the raised edge turns white.

Place a half back pearl in the center with a glue dot.

Ink the Butterfly stamp with Baja Breeze Ink. Ink the Stampin’ Around Wheel with Close to Cocoa. Run the Wheel across the inked Butterfly Stamp.
