Love & Affection Cards - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Originally inspired by the incredible Kylie Bertucci, I let the Affectionately Yours designer papers speak for themselves on these cards. Make them super simple like she did, or step it up a tad with some basic layering. Either way you can get 72 card fronts out of one pack of designer paper! And remember, no hoarding (we're all guilty of that when it comes to designer papers right?). If you love it, chop it! #loveitchopit :)

A very warm welcome to my blog if you've clicked through from our Stampin' Up! Artisan June Facebook showcase. Be sure to have a hop through all 20 Artisans and check us out on Pinterest!

See how I made these washi circles below!

To make the washi circles, I used the punch-twice method below. This was particularly good for the slimmer width washi as my sentiment strips were 1" wide (and 2 3/4" long FYI) and the middle gap needed to be just right so no white would show. Leave questions in the comments if you need :)
