Border Punch Focal Point

Here is another "level 1" card, i.e. a simple easy card that goes together quickly. This was one of the 5 we did at the

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment. Its from a stamp set called Sincere Salutations. This set has been around a long time, so long that its only available in wood mount. Its a great set, it has 8 different sentiments and they're all the same size. Perfect for designing 1 card and using it for many different purposes.

The visual interest on this card comes from the Lace Ribbon Border Punch (#122362). I just used a long piece of scrap white paper and cut it where it seemed to make the pattern balanced and symmetrical. The colored circles behind the white lace are Bashful Blue, Poppy Parade and Daffodil Delight. They were punched with the 1" circle punch (#119868). To finish off the card each of the circles has  one of our Self-Adhesive Rhinestones(#119246).

 When you're in a hurry you look for easy cards like this one. I like the sentiment set I used, but really any sentiment would work. To duplicate this card you just need the punches and the Rhinestones. 

Remember, you can shop on-line anytime.

Happy Stamping
