After all the holiday preparation, the team at SUO Challenges is a little punchy this week!! We are creating projects with our punches and can’t wait to see how you use yours. Now I will freely admit that I am not a “punch art” talent but I know that many of you are. I always love seeing what people create!
There is nothing quite like a punch to simplify your life and make a quick card so I went with that idea for my card. This is a birthday card for a friend of my oldest son. She loves orange so I figured a Pumpkin Pie flower was just the thing! I punched out 9 Scallop Circles from some Brights Designer Paper and layered them alternating the patterns. The background was the Old Olive dots pattern from the same DSP and plain Old Olive card stock. The sentiment is from Inviting. I got the sketch from a Fall-to Layout Challenge (171) from a couple of weeks ago. Once you punch out the Scallop Circles, just crumple the papers to soften the fibers. Then layer them (with a Basic Black scallop as a base) and re-fluff. I sewed them together but you can use a brad too.
My mom is leaving today and we have been busy with all the holiday stuff. I hope to be back a little later in the week with some new things. I hope you are having a great week. Thanks for stopping by and I will see you again soon!
