Playing with punches
Now that I'm moving on to other things, after Thanksgiving, I've been playing with some new toys.
I recently purchased the two wide punches in the back. When I punched a paper strip with the EK Success lattice chain and the Martha Stewart blossom trim, I didn't like them alone. The flowers and leaves were all the same color and didn't impress me. The lattice chain is a pretty strip, but a bit plain.
I decided to layer them together. I used the mini brads to attach the Prima flowers to the punched border. It needed something, so I punched the little flowers from a strip of gold paper and added them to the other flowers. I used the green Martha Stewart punch to make a background paper.
I attached the paper strips to a card made from Bazzill Bling. The Happy Birthday stamp is by My Heart Stamps for You.
