STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- Circle Punches (including the Scallop Circle Punch) make layering incredibly easy. Fun and flirty "shopping," "new shoes" and "chocolate" stamps pulled together in a snap.
- I added a Real Red Heart (using the Heart to Heart Punch) in place of the word "love" on the sentiment.
- Gussy up the interior. A Full Heart Punch of Real Red card stock is layered over a 1 3/4" Circle Punch of Chocolate Chip. Stamp the sentiment first, flip over your punch to line up where you want your text. Voil?!
- No need to keep your hand stamped creations a secret. Sign your artwork by using one of Stampin' Up!'s personalized stamps on the back.
