Place the Buffalo Check background stamp rubber side up on Grid Paper on your work surface. Ink up the stamp by pouncing or rubbing the Cajun Craze Ink Pad all over it. Leave the inked up stamp face up on your work surface. Carefully place the 4" x 5-1/4" Crushed Curry rectangle on the stamp. Fold the Grid Paper up and over the top of everything and rub firmly all over. Using the Grid Paper protects your hands from getting ink on them.
Tip: I just clean my background stamps by running them under water until the water runs clear. Then, I let them air dry.
Adhere the stamped Crushed Curry rectangle to the front of the Crushed Curry card.
Pick out the stitched rectangle die that cuts out a rectangle that is 2-5/8" x 4" from the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Put it on top of the Vellum rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the tool.
Tip: You may have to press fairly firmly along the edges of the die to pop the cut out loose.
