Cool Technique

Hi There! Surprised to see me back so soon...well I discovered this new technique and I had to share it with everyone.  The technique is called "Double Punch Inserts" and I thought how wonderful.

First of all a Martha Stewart punch around the page set is required.

I used the "Deco Flowers" punch set for my punch around the page. My designer paper and card stock is Basic Grey (pretty sure it is). I used one of my Recollections flowers and added a little stickles to it for a little shine.

The image is from Rick St. Dennis,  and I colored her using copic markers YG99,97, Y19,21,23, E39,37,13,11,00, C0, 03 and 01.  The banner and the circle was cut using a Spellbinders die.  I added a few pearls to finish my card.

After you punch around the page you create a template to use when creating your corners.
Here is a close-up of the resulting corner once you use the double-punch technique.

I thought this was such a cool technique and now I can't remember where I found it.

All I can remember is the site name was "Beehive" but try as I may I can't seem to find it again.
Additionally, I know I had to translate the instructions to English.

If anyone finds it or knows the author please let me know so I can give them credit for sharing the tutorial.




On the inside I decided to mimic the front and on the left I added a stamped sentiment.

On the final card after I took this picture I used my prismacolor pencils to color the waterfall, grass and hillside.





 I would like to enter this card in the following challenges.

Well my friends, time has flown by once again and nighttime has fallen.  I wish you well until tomorrow when I shall return to share more of my crafting world.

Hugz to all of you where-ever you are
