Pick out the 3-3/8" long die from the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. Put the die on top of the stamped white rectangle on a platform on your cutting and embossing tool so the bunny is centered top to bottom on the left side. Run through the tool.
Tip: You may have to press fairly hard along the edges of the die to pop the cardstock loose.

Use the Color Lifter Marker as needed to remove excess color.
If the dry embossed Crumb Cake rectangle is dry, proceed with the next step.
