  5. Place the inked stencil on the platform of a die cut machine, carefully place the stenciled image face down on the stencil, tape in place if desired, add a Rubber Embossing Mat and two cutting mats, run through the  die cut machine to dry emboss the image and transfer the Lavender ink to the background
