"Count The Waves"

Wednesday, January 26, 2011


It's surprising how much stuff you have, that you put away and forget about. Yesterday I was going through some drawers, when I came across six corner,border punches by Fiskars that I honestly forgot about.


The punch I used on todays card is called "A Tisket,A Tasket Border and Corner Punch" by Fiskars. The limits on these punches is that the paper being punch needs to have even number dimensions i.e. 4.0"X5.0" or 3.0"X 4.0". The really do a nice job on the corners and borders. They are very simple and easy to use.

The card I am posting today was made using one of these punches and the stamp used for the card is from "Just-Rite Stamps".

Here is the card I made.


"Count The Waves"



I used the Fiskars punch mentioned above plus some "Spellbinders" dies. Here is a close-up of the image;



The orange diagonal stripe on the card was cut using the Fiskars punch. A few dots of Gold Stickles was added to the card to give it some bling. The image was colored with Copic Markers.

Your comments are always welcome and appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Bob this is a great card. It is amazing the things we buy to craft with and they get tucked away.
