Sir Stampalot monthly challenge

I felt right at home with this challenge, as I love my punches, and don't use them as much as I used too. I'm sorry the photo isn't very clear.. me n camera's don't mix.

The challenge for June

The Sirstampalot challenge this month was Punches, I decided to do a wedding card and box

The box

I cut out a large oval and glued it to the centre of the box, then cut 1/4 inch strips to form the trellis, and punched out the hearts to decorate the edge of the oval. Made the flowers from various punches and placed them around the box.

The card

I punched the edges two pieces of cream pearlised paper, using a Martha Stewart edge punch. Added the ribbon down the side, and stamped the sentiment, from SU

The Punches

  3. Oh my Issy

    This is a beautiful set, I'm not sure which one I lvoe most, the trellis and spray of flowers is so delicate and the lacy border and threads on the other equally lovely.

    Thank you for joining in at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.
