Two For You.........

I combined the Special Offers for June together to make this card.

I kept to the colours that come in the Three for You Punch Box - Chocolate Chip, Bordering Blue and More Mustard. The ink spots are fabulous, hopefully they will be in the next catalogue. The Three for You punch is 3 flowers and it punches out the stamped flowers perfectly.

I started with half a piece of A4 Chocolate Chip cardstock and folded in half. Then I cut a piece of Whisper White 7.5cm x 12cm, stamped with the Paisley Background stamp in Bordering Blue ink but leaved an edge at the bottom which I used the Corner Rounder on to make the scallop border. Then I punched a tiny hole using the hand held punch in each scallop. I layered this onto some Bordering Blue cardstock.

Next, I punched out 2 round tab punch shapes in More Mustard and stuck then together to make a Circle and added a Bordering Blue scallop circle. I stamped the dotty stamp in More Mustard on a piece of 2cm x 5cm whisper white and edged this with Chocolate Chip. The 1 1/4 circle punch was More Mustard which I pricked using the pricking tool and clear mat, then added a Circle of Friendship image which I punched out using the 1" circle punch - saves time and energy cutting out that set. I stamped 3 flowers using the individual flower in More Mustard and used the Three for You punch to cut them out. The centre of the Circle image was punched out using the 1/2" circle punch, then the flower added with a Vintage Brad.

I had to add some Chocolate Chip Taffeta ribbon to complete the card. This card took me 20 minutes to make - Wow!

Will have some more for you tomorrow,
Thanks for looking,
