Upsy Daisy

When I made the last card for the Demo Swap I tried a different colour way, as we all do sometimes so that is how this card came about.  I stepped it up a bit for this card only using two sections of the image, using the Swiss Dots EB Folder on the base card and the EK Success Dotted Wave Punch. I didn't add a sentiment because I am not sure what I am using it for yet.

Stamperoo's Demo Swap for August

I made this card for the August Stamperoo's Demo Swap.  The theme was to use punches.  I used the 3/16" Corner Rounder Punch, which I have just discovered is not in the current catalogue and the retired Spring Flower Bouquet Punch. Oopps!! Never mind most people would have a Corner Rounder of some description. 
I inked the Upsy Daisy stamp with Pretty In Pink and then brushed the Rose Red over the top and stamped the image.  I cut the image into three even pieces and used the Corner Rounder Punch on every corner.  I tied the white grossgrain ribbon onto the card and then mounted the images on dimensionals.  I punched the flower and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment on the small strip of card.  I then punched a 1/4" circle (R) for the centre of the flower and dabbed it with the 2 way glue pen and added the glitter.  Although it is a very basic card it was quick and easy and suitable for a Make & Take at a workshop.
