Posts Tagged ‘Border Strips’

Hello! I made this 11″ x 8 1/2″ layout using Tonic Punches and the “Maggie Holmes Collection” by Crate Paper. With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought I’d make a page simply to express how much I love being “Mama” to these two kiddos.

To embellish the patterned paper’s already feminine feel, I used the Pick of the Bunch Punches, making both a small and large Pansy. (The large Pansy is layered with a second, smaller Pansy). I distressed the edges with Ranger Distress Ink and once I had the petals secured together, I bent them upward to help them stand out a bit. Finally, I added a resin flower embellishment and a button to the center of both flowers.

Next,  I used the Simplicity Doily Strip Punch as a border under my photo grouping and then two more, smaller pieces in place of leaves, next to the large Pansy. Before adhering everything down. I used the Tonic Paper Distresser to rough up the sides and give the page even more definition to it’s already layered look.

Tomorrow, I have a couple of Mother’s Day cards using the Petal Pairs Punches!
