(LG725). Place the stencil on neutral card stock, anchor the stencil with a few small pieces of removable tape, and apply color to the flower petals and leaves. Remove and clean the stencil and let the ink dry. Position the clean stencil over the inked image and move it about 1/4 to 1/2 inch to the left. Tape it in place as before, and color just the flowers in a lighter shade, as they will become the background. Remove and clean the stencil and let the ink dry. Finally, position the stencil over the flowers and leaves that you colored first. Tape all sides with removable tape, using the top piece of tape as a hinge. Apply Translucent Embossing Paste (DEPT). Remove and clean the stencil and let the paste dry. I've used ribbon and two colors of card stock for the mats, but the finishing touches are up to you, as long as it remains clean and simple. Couldn't be easier!
