Here is a GREAT card sent from Maureen. THANKS MAUREEN! We love getting her cards..so much talent! Here's what she had to say: MS Punch is Around the Page called Deco Fan. I cut a 5" card from ivory cardstock. Then I cut a 5" olive green cardstock. . The patterned paper was cut a bit smaller then I rounded the corners. Next is the green scallop circle from Nestabilities which I also embossed. Final piece of ivory is punched and embossed one size smaller. The sentiment "you're never more than a thought away" is from Stampin' Up....just love that saying for a card...so versatile! The ink color is Mellow Moss also from Stampin' Up. I edged the ivory circle in the same color and added 2 heart brads. To add dimension I always use foam dots which I did on the center punch.
Here is a simple card by me! I just HAD to get a hold of this Martha PAP punch called "crackle" Thanks you CropStop for the inspiration. I walked in, and it was on clearance at Michaels. I think I heard angels sing.. LOL The lil snowman was done by Dawn and was in my die cuts swap stash, the sentiment a rub on from stash, papers in stash. Boy I really "stashed" it on this one.. LOL Using up m'stuff.. woo hoo! This punch makes a great creepy background for a halloween card and I also saw it used to make it look like a fringed blanket around a lil dog die cut. So many uses! I have the brrrrr sort of cracked ice look for my card! I bet you gals could think of many more!
