CAS Challenge #7 - Punches

Today’s card was made for another Clean and Simple challenge on SplitCoastStampers – this challenge was to use punches. Now that I’m looking at it – maybe it’s not even considered “Clean and Simple!” Oh well – close enough!

The punch is a Tonic punch used in their Border System. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Apricot Appeal cardstock, punched, trimmed it down and added scored lines with my Scor-Pal. I mounted some black behind the punches, but left the top and bottom with no black. The background paper is from Sizzix. I used an EK Success border punch for the wavy and dotted line at the bottom. The sentiment is from SU!’s set called All Year Cheer I. The flowers are Primas that I received from someone. I added black brads to the flower center and in the lower left. (I love when the paper has a pattern which makes spacing the brads evenly so simple!) The punched-out butterflies were the perfect embellishment for the bottom border.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!

I love the boarder punch! I've never seen that one before; but I'm terribly sheltered lol!

Another great card!
