Two ways with two punches



Another Mixed Bunch sample and I like this one a lot more now that I’m looking it it a few days later. I CASEd it from a sample I saw on the internet but I’m really sorry, I’ve lost the bit of paper I was using as a guide and which had the name of the originator on it. I think it was a US demonstrator. Maybe I like mine more now that I can’t see hers – sometimes it’s easy to be harsh on your own creations if you’ve been trying to copy someone else.

I really love two things about this card and they both demonstrate the versatility of the punches:

1. The way the Blossom punch is used to create the effect of leaves. Totally nicked that from the US demonstrator I CASEd from.
2. The very very tiny Pear Pizzazz flower on the centre of the main flower. This was inspired by the card I was copying. I didn’t have the right punch so used one of the bits which fell out when I punched the Lace Border punch to go under the Thank You.
