Punch it # Creative Card Crew

Hi crafty friends,

Welcome to a new challenge with Creative Card Crew.

                            PUNCH IT

We'd like to see how creative you can be with your PUNCHES.
The choice is yours any topic as long as you have punchies on.

Our generous sponsor is Fred She Said

My DTcard

You wouldn't believe the trouble I had to get a good photo. I thought great it's a sunny morning but it came out too light. I must have tried to take a photo in 4 different rooms arrah!!! and ended up using the stairs and it's still not brilliant, which is such a shame as it's so sparkley and bright.

I'd like to say thanks to Pam for showing me this lovely card shape.
I don't know if it has a name other than an easel card.
It's a basic 5 3/4" square card scored across the middle. Then I penciled a line across the other way and lined up a square nestability where all the corners met the lines to cut out a square center.
Use the next size scallop nesty to mount  your image and the bottom corner sits inside at the front.
The opposite point is on a foam pad. I made the little boy a pop up.
I punched the borders with an EK punch and went around them with crystal glitter.
The gorgeous digi images are from our generous sponsor, Emma the snow angel and Catchin' flakes.
