Elegant, yet easy Punch card...

Here is a really easy card to make and it turns out so elegant looking in black and white! (but you could use any bright or bold colored cardstock you want, and it would turn out beautiful!  Change greeting for other occasions.

(Brandy Cox has a great video on making 10 cards in 20 minutes, while using this card layout.  I did not have the same stamp set she used, so I made do with stamps I had, in a similar style/design. I like how mine turned out!)

I ended up using two of the "Delicate Doilies" a set of 4 stamps...used medium doily for flower and a smaller doily for the border strip. I used "Perfectly Penned" for the greeting. (This greeting is also sold separately as a single, cling stamp.)

Although I show a large Rhinestone in center of this card, I liked using large Pearls for the ones I made later.
Note: I also made my border strip a little wider than hers...and I cut my white CS a little differently than she did. Mine is cut 5-1/4" x 8" wide, and then I folded it in half to create a 5-1/4 x 4" wide (white) card base.  My black  piece of cardstock is cut at 5-1/2" x  4-1/4" wide.

You'll need our 4 different sized Scallop Circle punches, to make the flower, plus the 2-1/2" Circle punch for punching out the "window".    (Click HERE if you need to order any of the punches or stamps.)

Thanks for stopping by the "Avenue of Art".  - Micki
