Hello Everyone

I've been having a play with my punches and here's a nice soft feminine card that I have created. 

The frame was created using the using the Scallop Trim Border and Corner punches. You can find a great tutorial on how to use the SU Corner and Border punches HERE by Gretchen Barron, a demonstrator in the US. You can create both rectangles and squares using these punches. After I created the frame, I then used a Spellbinders Die to cut away the centre. You could easily do this with a craft knife and a metal ruler also.

The Five Petal Flower, ¾” and ½” Circle punches were used to create the two toned pink flower and then each layer was run through the Square Lattice embossing folder. I used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on the white card behind the frame.

The leaves were created with the Swirls and Scribbles Sizzlet die and also the leaf from the Bird Builder punch. Colours used were Certainly Celery and Old Olive. The greeting is from Oval All and I used the large Oval and Scallop Oval punches.

Cardstock and inks used were Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette and also I sprayed the flower with some Frost White Shimmer Paint which was mixed with Isocol to give it that lovely shimmery look. Finally the ribbon … a double bow using Whisper White Organza!

Enjoy and if you have any questions, then just email me.

Happy Creating!
