Circle Cutter-

Punch 902

“Stained Glass” windows

I was looking at Punch 902 the other day and something about it reminded me of a stained glass window. So I decided to make a stained glass window border on a layout. I used the "A" guides and punched a border with the 902 punch along the bottom of black cardstock. Then I cut a strip of American Crafts brightly colored striped paper and adhered it to the back of the black cardstock:

Rk my Girl I love you cu2 

Then I used the Circle Cutter to cut about half of a 10" circle. I then set the Circle Cutter to 8" and cut inside that large circle to get a 2" wide arc. Next, I used the 902 punch to randomly punch out the daisies around the arc.

Rk my Girl I love you
I used the negative space from the border punch (the tiny daisies) to add to the title and journaling card.

Finally, I used my brand new Butterfly Punch 604 to punch out some coordinating butterflies from the striped and yellow papers.

And there you have it! A quick and easy way to give your projects a "stained glass" look and add a pop of color to a dark background. 

Have a great weekend!
