Stampin' Up!'s Elements of Style & April Promo Set - Four Frames...

Did you notice how the floral stamp which is part of the Four Frames stamp set in April's promotion matches perfectly with the roses from Stampin' Up!'s Elements of Style stamp set?  This is such an elegant Thank You card but would also work wonderfully as a Mother's Day card.  Are you wondering how I made the layers for the Decorative Label Punch?  Here's how to do that - it is really simple.  You will need Stampin' Up's Decorative Label Punch, scissors and some adhesive.

Using the Decorative Label Punch, punch your cardstock in your choice of cardstock colors.
 Cut the first layer using the pencil lines above as a guide.  They do not have to be exact except at the outside corners where you want to start cutting right at the point.
 Attach each piece with a 1/16th-1/8th inch overlap as shown below.
 The completed piece will look like above from the front and like below from the back.

If you want a third layer, cut the third layer in half as shown below and trim the outside edges as shown on the left side. 
 Layer again in the same way you did with the previous layer.
 Your finished label will look like this:
Pretty cool!!  Hey, how did you trick me into teaching you a technique and it isn't even Tuesday?
