Of all crafting tools, my favorite would have to be punches. They are easy to use, add dimension, and create the perfect accent to a project. More than ever, what I love to do most with punches is to transform them into something different. Whether it is using ovals and circles to create an owl card or recreating the Twelve Days of Christmas, punches can be used to create so many different things.
In this card, a scallop-edged square was transformed into a funky three-petal flower. Accented by other punches, shapes, accents and color, the flowers add just the right touch and pop of fun to this card.
