Lemon Zest Happy Birthday! Will surely put a smile on the Birthday gal or girl if only due to the bright colors!!!! The Lemon Zest Bundle brings you not only the stamp set but the coordinating punch too! I love punches more than any other tool in my craft room! They are so easy to use!
Here are some tips for you when using the punch.
Stamp your images on Whisper White Cardstock with the lemon/lime smaller end towards the bottom of the card stock. Then it will line up with the punch!
Stamp the leaves in a row(when using the leaves). I didn’t use leaves on this card but did on some others that I will post this week!
Punch from the right side to the left then you will have very little card stock waste and you won’t ruin the leaf beside it!
