Mount the birthday sentiment from the No Bones about It Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Soft Suede Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the Crumb Cake rectangle.
Mount the dinosaur footprints image from the No Bones about It Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Crumb Cake Ink Pad. Stamp it across the Crumb Cake rectangle just above the center line multiple times. Make sure to re-ink the stamp each time. Clean the stamp with Stampin' Mist and the Stampin' Scrub, but leave the stamp on the block, you'll use it again soon.
Scoop a small blob of Embossing Paste out of the container using a Palette Knife and place it on the Silicone Craft Sheet. Squeeze a couple of drops of Crumb Cake Ink Refill onto the paste and mix it in with the Palette Knife.
Use a Palette Knife to spread a thin layer of colored Embossing Paste in a rough circle in the center of the stamped Crumb Cake rectangle.
Mount the skeleton T-Rex image from the No Bones about It Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Soft Suede Ink Pad. Press the inked up stamp into the layer of Embossing Paste.
Ink up the footprints image with the Soft Suede Ink Pad and stamp it into the Embossing Paste layer if desired a couple of times. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time, but clean it quickly between re-inkings with a wet wipe or damp paper towel to remove any traces of Embossing Paste.
If you don't like the way any of the images stamped into the Embossing Paste, you can usually smooth it over with a Palette Knife and try again.
Use a Palette Knife to add some small smears of colored Embossing Paste around the edges of the central image if desired.
Set the Crumb Cake rectangle aside to let the Embossing Paste dry.
Clean the Silicone Craft Sheet, Palette Knives, and stamps immediately to remove all traces of Embossing Paste. If you allow the paste to dry on the items, it can be very difficult to remove. I wipe my items off quickly with a wet wipe or damp paper towel and then soak them in the sink while giving them a good scrubbing. Allow items to air dry.
Once the Crumb Cake layer is dry, adhere it to the Soft Suede layer and then to the front of the Crumb Cake card.
