Friendly Punches:


As some of you know, each fortnight my sister demo Mel sets a challenge. Usually it's a colour challenge, but this fortnight, the challenge was to make a card using as many SU punches as you possibly could. The above is what I created and other than stamping two items (the giraffe and the 'FRIEND', the remainder of the layout is manipulated cardstock (punched, torn or cut). In total there are 42 punch outs making up this layout. I had so much fun making this I really hope both you and Mel like it!

Supplies:
* Wild About You & BoHo Background Stamp Sets.
* Always Artichoke marker & Pumpkin Pie Stamp Pad.
* Glorious Green, Green Galore, Gable Green, Old Olive, Garden Green, Handsome Hunter, Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Whisper White, Going Grey, Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Pink Passion, So Saffron & last but not least Night of Navy Cardstock.
* Crop-A-Dile (small and large circles), Scallop Punch, Small Oval Punch, Round Tab Punch, Spring Flower Bouquet Punch, Word Window Punch and Horizontal Slot Punch.
