Hello everyone 🙂

Step by step tutorial:
I started my first layer punching the Early Espresso cardstock, measuring 21cm x 5cm, with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.
Using the Crumb Cake cardstock, measuring 18,5cm x 4,5cm, I stamped it with the Dictionary4me stamp, using Pearlescent Chocolate ink, and sponged the edges with Walnut stain distress ink.
For the third layer I used a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, measuring 10,5cm x 4,5cm, stamped the Music Background stamp set with Coffee Bean ink. Once the ink was dry I used the Around the Page Loops Border punch on the right hand side of the paper, and sponged the edges with Walnut stain distress ink.
I then punched out my quote with Curly Label Punch, and again sponged the edges with Walnut stain distress ink.
The quote wasn’t enough for me, so I added a thank you by stamping the word on a piece of scrap paper and then punching it out with the Oval Large Punch, then I punched another piece of scrap paper with the Oval Scallop Punch, and assembled everything.
On the piece that has the loops I used liquid glue because this is a very strong glue that turns invisible after drying, the last thing I would wanted was the loops sticking everywhere 😉
Here is the final result.
