All Occasion Card

Here’s another card, using the circle “thingie”. (Don’t know what else to call it!) :0)
But I added some li'l corner cuts. (instructions below)

Here are 3 different size circles, cut w/ the Martha Stewart Circle Cutter:- 2", 3" and 4", using the corner punch around the perimeter. I chose the 4" for this card, but just wanted to show the variety of sizes.

Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page:- Swirling Lace Martha Stewart Ladybug punch - ladybug
Martha Stewart Circle Cutter - circles
Glue- ATG and Zig Two-Way (for smaller items)
Stickles – Magenta

The card base is 5.25” x 10.5”, folded. The layer is cut at 5”, using the corner and border punches.

This time the circle was cut, using the MS Circle Cutter, at 4”, cutting around the circumference using the corner punch. Then I cut, separately, 4 corners to attach underneath the circle, just to jazz it up a li’l. Here’s how I did that:-

Then, inserted them on the 4" circle.....

Cut another circle 2 ¼”, adhering to the first one. The patterned paper has a flower on it. Now, what should go on top of the flower?? Well, that’s a “no-brainer” for me ---- a li’l ladybug, of course. :-) Soooo, used the Martha Stewart Ladybug punch and pop-dotted it on. Added a bit of Stickles.

If you click on the picture, it will enlarge and you’ll be able to see the card in more detail. Can you see the li’l ribbon I wove thru the lace? It’s a “sparkly” ribbon w/ both of the colours of the layers.

There are just sooooooo many things you can do with the MS Punch Around the Page punch sets. Hope I’ve given you lots of ideas.

I’d love to see your creations. Just leave me a comment on my blog and I’ll make a point to visit yours! :-)


  1. Oh, Linda, you are soooo funny -- the circle "thingie"!!! Heeee-heeeeee!!! Whatever it's called, I love your card!
