Stampin' Up!'s Elegant Always stamp set....
To make sure that the two embossed images lined up, I traced around the first oval on my grid paper so I could place the second oval in the exact same location. I then used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to place the image in the correct location on the oval. I left the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig in place for the second oval. All I had to do was to place the oval in the exact spot again which was easy since I had outlined it with the first one.
The other trick I used was with the Word Window Punch. I wanted my sentiment to be matted but there isn't another punch to work with the Word Window punch so I made my own. I punched out a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Word Window punch. I then cut the Basic Gray piece in half and attached it to the back of the sentiment leaving about an 1/8" showing on either end. I then took the Basic Black piece and cut it lengthwise down the center. I then attached these to the back leaving about an 1/8" showing. I think it mats the sentiment really well, don't you think?
