Perfectly Preserved Birthday with a Layered Curly Label Punch tutorial too!

Hello there,
It was my friends birthday the other day and so I played with new favourite stamp set Perfectly Preserved and the matching papers too, so gorgeous!
**Please scroll down for tutorial on layering the Curly Label Punch**

  I also used the matching Cannery framelits dies to cut out the little pears, these pears are my current crush and by far my most used stamp from this set...
I *heart* these buttons, my dear friend Julie gave me a few when she came to visit a few weeks ago, they are currently reserved for specials friends but I am counting the days 'till the 1st October when I can order at least 100 packs for myself (just in case I run out ;-) lol)
 and the inside was decorated a little too
So, do you like the button tab detail on this card? Well here is a simple way to achieve this double layered look to the punched Curly label tab! You need the Curly label punch (obviously) and the Decorative label punch too 
So, begin by punching the smaller Curly Label from your top layer of chosen card or paper, I inked the edges of mine but this is not essential. Then punch a Decorative Label from the background design again from either card or paper. Adhere the curly label to the decorative label with a narrow border at the bottom as shown here
Feed one side of the labels back into the Curly Label punch to make an even border at the side to match the bottom, punch it out!
 flip the labels around and repeat on the other side
 Now, the bottom corners will have this slightly uneven look so I just snipped it off with scissors, very easy
 and this is what you should have now. I then trimmed the top edge of the bottom layer so it was also straight
 and this is the finished tab!
I hope you have enjoyed this mini tutorial and I look forward to seeing it on your cards too ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today and if you need any help getting the punches (or anything else) I have mentioned then please contact me today to place an order ;-)
