Tips and Tricks - Punching Small Pieces of Card

I was prepping the cards for Stamp Club following the Class in A Flash instructions that I use for my club.  

I'd stamped my greeting on whisper white cardstock and punched it with the Extra Large Oval punch.  So far so good.  But it was to be layered on the Designer Label punch and I know you'll be very surprised when I tell you that isn't one I own yet.

So what to substitute it with - the Curly Label punch should work except the Extra Large Oval I'd punched was too large to look right.  So I needed to make it smaller.

To fit the oval in the smaller large oval punch I needed to temporarily add in to a larger piece of cardstock.  I placed a small amount of snail adhesive on the back and then removed some of the tackiness before sticking it to another piece of cardstock and sliding it into the punch.

Here's the look of the finished card.
