Circle Cutter-

Punch 902

Borders And Birds

Hi everyone, Lisa here with a bright and cheery floral card that works for any occasion.

Birdborders1

I created the background paper myself for this card, using Kreaxions Punch 902 and strips of American Crafts cardstock.  I started with my base piece first, which I cut 1.5" wide.  The rest of the strips are .75" wide.

I wanted to have alternating colors behind the punched flowers on the strips, so I decided to tape cardstock circles on the backside of the strip.  This gave the punched strips more dimension, too.

I used a .75" circle punch and snipped just a tiny bit off of the edges to the circles would fit on the strip without hanging over the edges at all.

I also used the positive part of the flower punch to decorate my stamped tree.  I stacked two different colors together, slightly off center, and glued then in the center.

The tree is stamped on a three-inch circle cut with the super-awesome Kreaxions Circle Cutter.  It works so fast, it's like using a punch.  I love it.

Thanks so much for looking!  Happy Easter and happy crafting!!  –Lisa Bedigian
