Hi Everyone,
Since it is getting closer to Christmas and the holidays, I thought I'd share with you a card that I will be sending out this holiday season. I used one of the brand new punches that are available now over at Just Imagine Crafts/Kreations, and it is so perfect for your holiday and winter season cards and layouts.

This great snowflake punch ,punch 312, makes a beautiful border and corners and..... well look at what this punch enabled me to create.

Make sure you save those punched out snowflakes, they'll look great on your card too!!!
This is a 6" square card. I used the C insert to punch the corners on that shimmery blue panel. I decided a border punched on a center band would look great on this card.The band started out as 1 3/4" wide and I punched it on one side for the 1st punch then I turned the card stock band around to punch the other side. As I alternated the sides I punched,  I just lined the punch up with the large snowflake. Next I attached the band to the card front and then I added my sentiment to the center. Then I glued the larger and the small flakes to the card and it's finished and in no time flat.

Well have a great week and I will see you soon.

love the way you turned the punch and alternated the punches! I can't wait to try out all my punches with this technique! Beautiful card!!!

How lovely! What great use of punches, Barbara! The feather light snowflakes around the corners really soften the card all the more! Thanks for sharing a great idea!

This looks like one that you can mass produce! I need a couple like this for my 163 cards this year! TFS
