Window Daisy | Paper Punches!
Hi everyone, thank you for stopping by. I hope you're having a great day.
Today, I thought I would step away from the stamping and colouring (I know, right??!?!) and do something that I haven't done in a while.
Paper punching!! While the greeting is clearly stamped from Clearly Besotted, the rest of the card was made with punches. I cannot remember the last time I did this.
To begin, I punched the small daisy from some plain white cardstock, I punched the centre from a scrap of yellow patterned paper.
I punched the larger square 4 times, then punched a smaller square out of the middle of each to create some frames. I could totally have done this with my dies, but then I couldn't say I did all of this card with punches, right?
I used the larger square punch to get the green patterned background and built my frames up on that one. Had I done this with dies, the frames would have been even and not wonky on the bottom. But that's part of the joy. At least it was wonky for all of them.
I'm nothing, if not consistent.
I then adhered my frame to the front of a standard A2 sized card base, then stamped the greeting from Clearly Besotted. I added my little daisy to the centre.
To finish it off, I used a scattering of enamel dots from my own Spring Daisy mix.
I hope you like today's card and are inspired to create something of your own. If you haven't already, please follow me over on the right side bar. You can also follow me on Facebook. Toss me a line in the comments section below and let me know what you think.
