Punch It





It is a technique Challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown and they want to see cards made with punches. My punch kept jamming whilst I was punching out the 30 leaf stems I used to create my wreath so it took some time to prepare. I added a tartan bow and red gems placed the wreath on an embossed card added  my greeting and it was complete.

  13. This is so elegant!! Lovely card. I hate it when I have a punch that sticks! I just threw a punch away the other day because I couldn't get it to un-stick! I have heard that you can sharpen punches by punching through aluminum foil and I think wax paper makes them punch "smoother?"
