steps to curve sentiments

  1. Decide where the sentiment should curve around the image before stamping to leave enough room.
  2. Stamp the image where determined from Step 1.
  3. Decide on an oval or circle die that is the proper size for the image stamp.
  4. Tape the die on the OUTSIDE lid of the Misti as an aid for arranging the sentiment stamp.
  5. Apply the sentiment stamp on the INSIDE lid of the Misti, using the die as a template to keep the curve even.
  6. Add a window sheet over the stamped image so the sentiment position can be tested.
  7. Make adjustments to the die and sentiment, then re-test.
  8. When ready, remove the window sheet and stamp the sentiment in place.
