For my first design team contribution at Scrapbook Blessings Club I made this card using punches.
You can find the challenge here on the SBC blog:
I started with pink cardstock measuring 7 inches by 10 inches to make the card 5 inches by 7 inches. I cut a piece of PP from CTMH Chantilly collection to 5 inches by 7 inches and glued it to the inside of the card on the right side so it would show through where I punched the corners of the card front. To punch the two right corners I opened both wings of the Martha Stewart corner punch and punched both corners. To punch the two left corners open just one of the wings, open up the card, line up one edge of the card front on the wing and then line up the fold line on your card with the little silver mark on the side of the punch opposite the side where you have the wing open. Repeat for the bottom left corner by using the opposite wing. Then you can see the PP that is on the inside of the card through the punched corners. I put a rhinestone on the PP so it would show through part of the punched out area.
Then I prepared my border strips. I measured the silver picture of what the punched edge is supposed to look like and doubled that measurement. Then I cut my border strip to that size. I punched both sides of the border strip being careful to match up the pattern on both sides. You will get results like the borders above and below the stamped image. It is a digital stamp from our challenge prize provider this week at the SBC blog. I printed it on glossy photo paper and colored with CTMH alcohol markers.  Then punch out a butterfly from the same PP as you use for the inside of the card. Attach all your pieces to the card front and embellish as desired. I cut a 3 inch by 4 inch piece of plain pink cardstock for the inner right side of the card for my sentiment and message to be written on. I hope you learned something new today and will join in the challenge and enter your creation for a chance to win!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a Scrapbook Blessings kind of day.
See you next time.
