Hello again! Charity here with another reason to grab yourself some punches and that FABULOUS circle cutter.
And what better reason than your own sweet Mommy?
For this card I started with a 4.5"x6" base. Then I set my circle cutter on 4" and cut out a base from a contrasting color. I cut this circle in half and then punched along the rounded edge with Punch #919,
After inking the punched edge of my cardstock I scored the half circles so that they overlapped in front of my card base. I left a half inch tab in the back for adhering to my card base and trimmed off the extra. Don't you know it, I got it a little crooked so I added pale pink ribbon to the lower edge and called it good.
To close the card I placed a brad 2 inches in on each side and then tied a quick bow with twine.
To get the line of embossed butterflies across the top I first punched a piece of heavy cardstock with Punch #901 and Insert A. Then I laid it across the top of my card as a mask and sponged embossing ink along the design. A poof of pink embossing powder and a hit with the heat gun and this card was ready to go.
