They do it with punches... in 3 mins!

Good morning! It's Three Minute Thursday here today and I've made a quick card using the oh so useful Pretty Petites stamp set and its coordinating punch - both available free as part of the Stampin' Up Sale-a-bration promotion. Come and have a look:


It's all about punches with this card! When I saw the Pretty Petites stamp set and its coordinating punch, I immediately noticed that the shape echoed Stampin' Up's Curly Label punch and thought it would be quick and easy to make a quick shadow box-style card.


I stamped the sentiment first, cut it out with my 1" square punch and mounted it onto a square of Primrose Petals Core'dinations card stock. Next, I made a frame by punching some Raspberry Ripple card stock with the Petite Curly Label punch, then cutting round it with the larger Curly Label punch. This was attached to the textured layer with dimensionals and then the whole thing mounted onto the card front. Simple!

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Pretty Petites (Sale-a-bration freebie)
Ink: Raspberry Ripple
Card stock: Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple smooth card stock, Primrose Petals Core'dinations
Punches: Petite Curly Punch (Sale-a-bration freebie), Curly Punch, 1" square punch

Tuesday's spring card obviously worked - the sun came out yesterday! In the car on the way to collect my daughter yesterday afternoon, it actually became quite warm and I had to pull over to take my coat off. I threw it in the passenger seat and resumed my journey. When my daughter came to get in the car, I apologised for it being there and moved it to the back seat. She got in and strapped herself in. "Your coat - loved from the beginning," she said. "Me - loved a little less!"

See you tomorrow,
