Tutorial - A Different Way To Use The Decorative Label Punch

Yesterday in THIS POST I shared a card for you where I used the Decorative Label Punch to make decorative ends on the sentiment layer.  I am back today with a tutorial on how I did that.
First Supplies:
 Poppy Parade ink, Happies Birthday Wishes Happy Birthday stamp, Decorative Label Punch, Marina Mist cardstock - 7/8 x 3-1/2, Whisper White cardstock - 3/4 x 3-1/4.  Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White with the Poppy Parade Classic Ink....
 Line up and punch out the left hand side of the cardstock in one of the corners of the Decorative Label punch ....
 Do the same thing to the right hand side, but use the opposit corner of the punch .....
 This is what it will look like when punched on both sides ....
 Adhere the Whisper White cardstock to the Marina Mist cardstock ....
 Line up the sentiment in the Decorative Label punch again using the same corners and leaving about 1/8" of the Marina Mist cardstock showing, then punch out the left hand side ....
 Next do the same thing to the right hand side, making sure you are using the same corner you used for the Whisper White layer .....
And there you go.  Both sides punched with the Decorative Label punch.  You can get different looks depending on where on the Decorative Label punch you line up your cardstock.
Have fun, and I hope you give this a try.
Happy Stampin' ....
