Just beautiful Amanda. What did you use for the background shapes for the letters? Anne x

Amanda said...

It is the Artisan Label Punch again Anne. One cut in half widthways and glued top and bottom. Then the other cut in half lengthways and glued left and right.

Ps just in case it isn't clear to see...the letters are stamped and punched out using the Artisan Label punch in the first place.....
