1. Stamp Greeting in bottom right corner of card base.
2. Stamp Medallion Pieces and Acorn with the stated colors on Very Vanilla:
  • Cajun Craze medallion piece, cut along outside leaving a little vanilla showing

  • Old Olive medallion piece, cut the innermost flower
  • Early Espresso Acorn, cut around edges

3. Run Old Olive Card Stock through the big shot using the embossing folder.
4. Adhere and layer pieces of the medallion together.
