  2. Place the Opto Checkerboard stencil on the big platform of the die cut machine, spritz a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of white cardstock with a fine mist of water and lay the paper on the stencil. Place the rubber embossing mat on the paper, then 2 new cutting plates, and run the stack through the machine.
  3. Remove the stencil, swipe the New Sprout ink pad over the embossed image until you get the amount of color you want, trim to right along the design on all sides.
