Grins - that's exactly what I did today, after my experience a couple of weeks back with the nasturtium leaves. I used thinnish card today, so I was able to have two sheets with the petals sandwiched between them (so I have another sheet waiting to use), and have kitchen towel on both sides of that and still run it through the Big Shot with no mess.
