My Card Crafts group is having a sketch swap for July.
I decided to go with blue and white and try out my new Martha Stewart punch.
I began by creating the "hello" using Microsoft Word and then trimmed it down and punched the edges with Martha Stewart's "Doily" edger. I attached it to the blue cardstock with glue stick.
Next I tackled the flower by cutting a long strip of photo paper and edge punching it with my new Martha Stewart deep edge punch " Garden Trellis". I recently had found a video for making flowers using border punches and wanted to see if I could make this one work. I'm pleased with the result! Of course I had to make my own changes, lol. I attached the flower with a brad.
The butterflies were punched with Tonic's "Butterfly Multi-detail". I detached the butterfly from the paper by snipping the top and bottom of the body. I glued these on only by the body and folded the wings upwards.
I decided the ribbon would have been too much so I chose to leave it off.
