Crafty Secrets image ( Snow Bunnies ) packs a pretty big punch when stamped on the center of this bulb, don't ya think? The two sentiments (Sliding by to say & Happy Holidays) which are on the inside of the card are also part of the "Snow Bunnies" stamp set. In order to get my Sentiments positioned properly, I first layed them stamp side down on my tag. I then pressed my acrylic block over them and waalahh, they are adhered to the block spaced perfectly for my tag!
Let's talk Martha Stewart Punches...... For the life of me, I could not figure out how to Stamp around an entire piece of cardstock spaced properly. Surely I am not the only person experiencing this, which is there is a TUTORIAL HERE
