Dare I say it??? I think Spring might, just maybe, probably, possibly, hopefully… is just around the corner. Knock on wood! Before we all bid a fond? farewell to Winter, I thought that I would share this cutie pie card with you all. I have been intrigued by punch art lately. The intrigue is driven by – 1) my handheld punch obsession, 2) my 4 year old son who loves to use my punches and 3) I was looking for a new class to add to my monthly schedule.
I saw a version of this Polar Bear card on Pinterest (another obsession), and with a few changes I re-created it. I wish I knew who originally created this card because it is amazingly cute and I would love to give credit where credit is due.
The key to making punch art pop, literally, are Stampin’Dimensionals, sticky double sided foam tabs that you layer behind key elements that you want to pop off the page/card. Another tip is to sponge ink around the edge of the punch art pieces. This creates shading, depth and adds interest to your punch art. The beautiful snowflakes in the background are created by using the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and highlighting them with Dazzling Details Silver Sparkle.
Next time I make this card, I will also sponge ink onto the edge of the ‘snow’ and add a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter there as well.
Thanks for allowing me to create , inspire and share with you. Happy almost SPRING! 🙂
