Don't want to miss out on this week's challenge at the Pals Paper Arts. The challenge is an Element of Style - Paper Piercing and I love to poke holes. All you need to do is create a CAS, (Clean and Simple) card using paper piercing and link it to their website by clicking here. So poke away!!!
Here is mine
For this card, I decided to focus on a circle card to change it up a bit from the normal 4.25 x 5.5 " that I normally do. In addition, I focused on it being clean and simple which is always a challenge for me. I always feel there is something missing, but this one I was happy with.
I started off by poking holes along the left hand side of the chocolate chip cardstock to define the circle more and than took the Pink Pirouette cardstock and paper pierced the sides to add more definition to it using the mat pack and paper piercing tool.
I used the new hostess set called: Posy Punch and stamped it with Marina Mist Ink and than used the matching punch called Fancy Flower to punch it out. Afterwards, I took another image and stamped it using Soft Suede Ink and put stampin dimensionals under it before putting it in the center and added dimensionals under the fancy flower itself also.
Last but not least, I added Basic Pearl in the center and 5 little rhinestones around the flower to give it a little sparkle. For the leaves, I used the stamp set called: Build a Blossom which comes in super handy when you want to add some leaves to any flowers with Pear Pizzazz ink on top of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
Chocolate Chip circle size is 3 3/4"
Pink Pirouette strip measures 5/8" width x 3 3/4"
DSP: Beau Chateau approx 1/4 of the 3 3/4" circle
