  6. With the 5″ side of the piece of Basic White cardstock facing upward, place your smallest circle and next size circle die on the piece of cardstock.
  7. Run through the emboss and cut machine.
  8. Then use the smallest die to cut a third circle to the right of one of the circles you previously cut.
  9. Now using the small and next size circle dies cut 3 circles out of your choice of Designer Series paper.
  10. At the bottom of this basic white layer stamp “Merry Christmas” using Cherry Cobbler ink.
  11. Then with a piece of tear & tape secure the cut DSP circles behind the holes that you have cut from the 3-3/4″ x 5″ piece of white cardstock.
