Back to School Card

In the spirit of back to school I thought this was a fun card to make!! Get out your punches!!!

Supplies: Window Punch, Tab Punch, notebook spiral punch, boho blossom punch Black card stock, crushed curry card stock, real red card stock, white card stock, pretty in pink card stock, whisper white ink, black ink
The trick to make this apple was to tab punch red card stock and then punch it again moving your punch up to get the nice "apple" red strips at the top and bottom of your "core".
The same type of thing was done for the pencil. I used the window punch to punch out part of the "eraser" from the pink card stock. For the apple seeds I just punched the flower punch out of black card stock and trimmed off petals for seeds.

Scrunched Ribbon Card

Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly Stamp Set, Upsy Daisy Stamp Set, Razzelberry Double Sided paper, Filigree brads, Rhinestone Brad, Bermuda Bay card stock and ribbon, sticky strip, Crushed Curry ink and Dusty Durango Card stock and ink

This card is fairly self explanatory the only new technique used for this card was how we applied the ribbon. Lay a strip of sticky strip down and then bunch your ribbon over it. We finished the ribbon with a filigree brad and placed a rhinestone brad in the center of it.
