Challenge: Use 3 punches
September 17 - 23rd, 2013
At Cuttin" and Stampin" this week we are having a "Three Punch Challenge." I love using punches, I own many of them, and never thought twice about how many I could use on a single page or card until this challenge. I was given two shades of Bazzill Basic blue papers to use along with using three punches of my choice. It took me the longest time to finally come up with a card using these two requirements as the basics of my card. I started off with a top fold dark blue card, measuring 11" x 4.25", scored at 5.50". I cut my next layer out of the light blue at 4" x 5.25". I inked the Paper Smooches Borderlicious tiny polks dots border with VersaMark, sprinkled it with a white embossing powder, and then heat set the layers. I then used a 2.50" circle punch on a scrap piece of inked beige pattern paper, and a snowflake punch using a scrap of the dark blue paper. Using my hand punch I punched a small hole in the center of the snowflake and inserted a randum large snowflake brad I had in my stash and attached it to the light blue layer.
I cut a 18" piece of ribbon and tied a bow on the bottom of the top layer.
I adhered my top layer to my card base. I stamped my verse on another scrap piece of the light blue cardstock and using my third required punch I punched this out along with a second punch on the dark blue cardstock and matted the verse.
This is the Paper Smooches "Borderlicious" stamp set and the required two shades of Bazzill papers.
These are the three punches I used for my card
I am done! I must say, this was a real challenge for this gal! I may have used three punches on other projects, but I will remember this one!
