It’s always a great when you can use your tools in more than one way, and today on the Weekly Deals we have a punch that can help you do just that! The Flower Medallion Punch is on sale for 25% off this week, and although it was introduced in our Spring Occasions catalog and it coordinates with some of our spring-like flowery stamps, I decided to use it in a different way this season:
To make it into a Poinsettia, punch it out of Real Red card stock and then score each petal. Make valley folds on the larger petals and mountain folds on the smaller petals to give it dimension. Punch the flower again from Old Olive card stock and trim a couple of the larger petals off to make the leaves, scoring them also. Punch the yellow center of the flower with one of the Itty Bitty Accents Punches and the tiny black middle with the 1/8″ inch hand-held Circle Punch. Attach everything with Glue Dots.
Old Olive Baker’s Twine, also on the Weekly Deals, is used as an accent on this card. Stamp sets used include Sassy Salutations (outside sentiment,) Happy Scenes (inside sentiment,) and Awesomely Artistic (spots on card front.)
Here are all of the Weekly Deals, available while supplies last through Monday, November 9th. Click on any picture for more information or to order:
