Christmas Punch Card

Good Morning Everyone!

Time for another Sketch challenge from Stamping 411.

I hope you’ll take the time to play along this week.

Here is the sketch:ssc123

…and here is my interpretation…..

Sketch 123 I had fun with this one……

I used the Five Petal Punch form Stampin’ Up!….I love this punch, I think it makes the best flowers. I punched the flowers and sponged the edges of the flowers with Real Red Ink, just to darken the edges a bit.

I then took my fingers and slightly creased the center of each petal forming it into a curved flower. I stacked tow together and attached with a glue dot to the card. For the centers of the flower I used my 1/16th hole punch and  punched a variety of scrap paper I had lying around. The punch has a little storage compartment for the pieces which made it really easy for me. I added some Crystal Effects into the center of the flowers and added the punched pieces to resemble the inner part of the flower. I added some rhinestone brads,  ribbon and a Sentiment from the “Four the Holidays” Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! and Voila!!! The only thing stamped is the sentiment. I think it’s very festive…I hope you think so too!

I appreciate you stopping by and hope you’ll visit often.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

very cool card Lee, I love it but then I didn't have that punch when making my card, but I do now, so will have to give these a go. the idea of the center is cool but I think I might try it with gold beads too.
Thanks for the inspiration.
