Too-wit! Too-woo!

I love , love, LOVE this card! It was made using two of my current favorite things: Card Candi from Craftwork Cards and the second of my Martha Stewart Round the Page punches.

An owl shape was cut from a piece of blue/green  tartan-ish paper and pale blue Stickles was used to go around all the edges. A white scalloped circle was glued onto the centre of the owl and a small blue triangle was cut for the beak.

The owl was then glued to a piece of blue card measuring 6.75 inches which had been punched with the MS round the page punch.

The topper was then glued onto an 8 x 8 square card from Craftwork Cards.

Co-ordinating Card Candi was then attached around the edge using small squares of 3d foam. Card Candi was also used for the owls eyes.

Another Round the Page

Another card made using one of the many toppers I have and my new Martha Stewart Round the Page punch.

Martha Stewart Round the Page Punch

I have recently purchased a couple of Martha Stewart Around the Page punches and this is my first attempt at a card using the "French Scroll" punch set.

First of all you have to cut your card stock into squares of set sizes, The larger square being 5 inches and the smaller on being 3.25 inches.

You use the corner punch first to punch all four corners of your card and then you punch out the edges using the second punch which has a guide printed on it so that you line up your card correctly.

I know Martha Stewart punches are a little more expensive than those in other ranges, but the quality is superb and they are so easy to use.  Will definitely be buying some more of these.
