July ICS Blog Hop Punch Me Out

Welcome to the ICS Blog Hop! Today we are sharing projects using punches, so I’ve decided to use a few classics from the Annual Catalog. CIRCLES! I’ve used three different circle punches on today’s card and I really love how it turned out!

It’s very similar to the Tunnel Card I made earlier, however on a much smaller scale with not quite as much dimension. Some people call this a porthole as well, like the windows on a ship. What would you call it? Let me know in the comments below!

I really love how soft the Champagne Foil is on this card. It is a beautiful color! It’s very soft, and elegant I think. Silver and Gold are beautiful and have their place, but there’s just something about this Champagne that says “I’m here and I brought the Bubbly, er, MYSELF!”

I accented the 1/2″ Champagne circles with two of the dies from the Detailed Peacocks Dies. I love these little branch dudes. They are so pretty! And I especially love the Champagne foil paired with the Basic Gray. It really makes a lovely combination.

Measurements:

Whisper White Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, Score @ 4-1/4″
Basic Gray Mat: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
Whisper White Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Champagne Foil: Scraps
