I pulled out another EK Success decorative corner punch and played with it yesterday. This was a little more time-consuming than I had expected. Lots of measuring, and punching, and cutting; and then measuring, and punching and cutting again. I think I went through three sheets of cardstock before I was finally happy with the dimensions of my frame. Yet, through it all (and through the sore forefinger), I enjoyed the process of experimenting. The Gibson Girl stamp is by Non Sequitur. A pretty face to frame, I thought.
I used pop-dots beneath the frame. What, you say? Ethel using pop-dots? Never! LOL! If you're ever at a loss for what to buy me for my birthday or Christmas, I can give you a hint...... All Night Media pop-dots and 3M ATG refill tape. There you go. I'm easy to shop for. LOL!
Here are the basic supplies I used to make this card. The only things missing from the photograph are pop-dots and a metal edge ruler.
If you decide to go out and purchase some of EK Success' decorative paper punches, take a look at the back of the package for ideas. I know that I've missed the back of the package, and I stare at the front of punch, trying to envision how to use it. I didn't realize the versatility of the punch until I looked at the back of the package.
Thank you for stopping by! To my friends and readers along the Carolina coast, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Stay safe and I hope your neighborhoods will come through Tropical Storm Hanna, unscathed.
