So I keep buying these Christmas clearance punches...

So I keep buying things I don't know if I will use....
For example these border punches. I decided to make this card with the trees. I cut 5 strips of green paper, punched the trees. On the brown card I took yellow, orange and reddish-orange ink and did a sunset in the top part of the card. All the trees are inked with white ink (I have a versamark ink pad in cloud white) and cocoa petal inks. Sentiment is stamped in Stampin Up Chocolate Chip classic ink. Martha Steward bird punch and ribbon from Michaels.
I did two pictures so you can really see the inking and layering. I actually really like how this came out and will probably do one in blue/white as well.


  1. Lisa, this is awesome. I looove it, very creative. I bought that punch too among others :) and that is a great idea. They are not just for Xmas but like you did, for backgrounds. TFS!

  2. Thanks!! I really have to find a use for them or else I would feel guilty about buying them. I think I am going to stay away from the craft stores for the next 2 weeks. I've been buying and i really shouldn't be!!


Thanks for leaving a comment!!
