Punch Art




The challenge this week at 52 Christmas Card Throw Down is to use punch art.  Sure wish I hadn't sold most of my smaller paper punches at a garage sale last month.  Good thing I kept one of my favorite punches, my Martha Stewart branch punch.  This punch is so versatile.  I decided to use it to create a wreath for the front of my card.  I then used a regular hole paper punch for the berries.  The card was created using the fancy frame flip its die from sizzix.  I have had this die for over a year and haven't used it because I was afraid it would break my cuttlebug.  Well, I broke my cuttlebug last week so decided to replace it with a Sizzix big kick.  My cuttlebug still works even though the side popped off and it has a crack in it but I just wasn't sure  how long it could last so I replaced it before I was stranded without a die cutter.

Card Details:
Card Shape: Sizzix fancy frame flip-its die
Spellbinders die
Martha Stewart branch paper punch
Hole paper punch
