In a "Punchy" Mood

Those who know me as a crafty person, know that I love, love...wait, no, adore border punches.I won't say no to a fabulous corner punch either, but edge punches are my passion. I have lots of them and never seem to grow tired of them. If anything, as time goes on I keep finding more and more ways to use them.

I will be sharing some of my tips and tricks at the upcoming "On the Edge" class I created to be taught at Wiggles and Giggles. Since this class has been offered at different times of the year, I've been creating different samples to go with it. This time around, it was time to feature a Valentine's Day card.

There's not a single drop of ink, nor a spot of marker on this card. It's been made entirely with punches and one very pretty (if I do say so myself) embossing folder.

This flower has, too, been created with help of an edge punch. Several rows of punched pattern attached to each other and then tightly would to create the blossom. Easy, peasy and tons of fun!


Cardstock: cream and ruby
