A couple years ago I bought a Cornercopia. It is a device that works with most punches for punching corners. I played with it a little bit, but I soon lost interest and it found it's place on the bottom shelf and there it has stayed, largely undisturbed until recently.
I was cleaning my craft area last week and stumbled across it again so I started experimenting with various punches. Here is my latest creation.
This card went together very fast and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. I punched the corners of the red foreground paper using my Cornercopia with a one inch flower punch. After I glued the red foreground onto the green background, I thought the corners looked rather bare, so I took the punch outs and glued them into the corners of the green background paper. I really like the way it turned out.
The frame around the reindeer is made from four punched flowers, cut in half. The two green flowers were punched with a Marvy one and one half inch flower punch and the two red flowers were punched with All Night Media's one inch flower punch.
