Instead of making cards this time, I decided to just make card toppers, giving you some different ideas.
Most of the designs, w/ the exception of one, started by using a Punch Around the Page on a 3 ¼” square, layered onto a 3 ½” square. Each time, I used the Rose Window Punch All Over the Page punch in the centre. Here are the particulars:-
Punch Around the Page: Snow Flurry
Centre:- Poinsettia embellie
Punch Around the Page: Swirling Lace (the one that 10 lucky gals won!) :-)
Centre:- flower w/ brad
Punch Around the Page: Scallop 3-dot
Turned it on its side (to form a diamond)
Centre:- design on patterned paper
See below for the patterned paper I started with. Depending on what patterned paper you use, you can get some neat effects.
Here, I’m showing how easy it was to create a row of 2 punch-outs on 2 rows; hence 4 punch-outs.
Centre: glittery snowflakes
Punch Around the Page: Quilted
Centre:- used the cutout from the 4 punch-outs (above), topping w/ a rhinestone
Here’s a pic to explain it a li’l bit better:-
Martha and her creators thought of everything!!! WTG!!!
Also, w/ all of these punches, you’re left w/ other li’l embellies. W/ this punch, I’m left w/ 1 ¼” scallop circles. I don’t have a scallop punch so this is an added treat. W/ the butterfly one, you’ll have li’l butterflies. W/ the heart one --- hearts. W/ the star one --- stars. You get the idea! :-)
I have another idea in mind to show you, but this is going to take a li’l time to create. Stay tuned. :-)
