Good morning, Stephanie here with 2 cards today. I had originally planned on giving you a look at punch 918, but then we have the wonderful sketch challenge this month and I created a card for that. Since working with these punches is so much fun, and I go for them daily, I thought I'd share both cards today.
My first card is based upon the sketch challenge and who doesn't love a challenge!! Just remember you have a lot of wiggle room when working with a sketch – it doesn't have to be exact, but it must resemble the sketch!!!
Instead of die cuts along the edge of the card, I used a large ribbon and attached my sentiment to it.
I used the lattice die which can be found in the store as the background for my card. I used the fabulous Circle Cutter to cut my circles, then stitched them to the background. I cut the butterfly die and placed it slightly off center and added some rhinestone swirls underneath and some pearls on top.
I then used Punch 901 along some white cardstock that I placed inside the card.
I wanted it to stand out so I backed it with some black cardstock. Now this card is ready for any occasion you want to remember Mom.
For my second card, I used punch 918 without the inserts. I love using these punches without the inserts because I can create 2 nice borders at the same time. When you are finished punching, you can easily seperate the 2 pieces and use either one or both. This is a perfect way to use up your scraps!
I decided to use both borders from punch 918 – one along the top edge of my card and one along the bottom edge. I added a little ink for definition, a spring quote, a couple of brads and a pretty card was the result.
Pull out those scraps, and get punching!!!
I had so much fun creating these cards and I'd love to see what you can do with the sketch challenge this month.
