Unity Stamp Challenge: Let It Snow: ... AND ... I am so very proud of myself; I have been SO frantic lately because I had yet to come up with a Christmas card to send out to people -- but today, I figured one out to make and I am very pleased with how it turned out. I was (literately) staring at all my scrapbook stuff in my space and thinking in what way I could use it to make a Christmas card. My eyes finally landed on the Martha Stewart's "Punch All Over The Page" punch. I only have the Diamond Rings Pattern, but after using it today; I will be buying more before Christmas and fast. They are amazing and I love them. (They are a bit expensive, but if you have a Michael's by you, then have them there and you can use your coupons on it) My only complaint about them is sometimes they get stuck and it's hard to punch down - I don't know how to fix that yet to make it better and easier on me.
But I have to say, I think that the design and idea of the punches are wonderful and it's so cool to have a punch that can go anywhere. Here is (one) of the cards that I will be sending out this year. I am going to dress it up some more and change out the decoration that is shown in the red piece. I used a beautiful Stampin Up! stamp here and it looks great but will use some other stamps later and use a white embossing powder - not like the one shown. Thanks for taking a look
