I love punches! Don't get me wrong - dies are great - but sometimes I just want to do a quick card without hauling out the die cut machine - and punches do the trick! My card today uses a couple of them -
I'm so happy we are having cooler weather and fall is in the air. I have been doing so much with this bundle of products. In fact my next blog post will feature it again.
Those coordinating punches are just the cutest things! I also used the Detailed Trio punch - which has the perfect corner rounder.
So for my card I started with a Crumb Cake A2 base then a 4"x4" layer of Cajun Craze; a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" layer of Very Vanilla and four 1 3/4" squares from the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper.
I played with them a bit and laid them out in the pattern I wanted, then using the corner rounder, I rounded two opposite corners on each square. You can see two rounded and two not here - After finishing rounding and placing them I put my card together and added a couple sprigs of green, a sentiment, and two acorns all from the Beautiful Autumn set. I even punched the acorns with that cute little acorn punch above.These are the colors I used and the braided twine - all go so beautifully together and perfect for this time of year. And of course I had to make the inside of the card pretty too!
I hope you enjoyed my post and would love it if you'd leave me a comment. Now click on through to the rest of those hopping this month to see all of their wonderful creations! ~Maureen
