Step by step tutorial:

I punched my piece of Always Artichoke cardstock measuring 17.5cm x 5cm, with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.



Trimmed my quote to 7,5cm by 3cm, and sponged the edges with Shabby Shutters distress ink.



I then moved to the second layer, the piece of Pistacho Pudding cardstock measuring 15.5cm x 4,6cm, and stamped the cup, the steam and the heart from the tea4two stamp set, the teabag from the moretea4us stamp set, and attached the quote.



Then I had the 1″ circle scalloped punch and the minis4circles stamp set on my hands, so I went ahead I stamped the word ‘Laugh’ and the circle of  hearts in a scrap piece of Pistacho Pudding cardstock, punched it out and inked the edges with Pearlescent Thyme ink, gluing it on the top right hand side.
