House of Cards Stamped Punch Window Challenge

We have a technique challenge for November over on the House of Cards Challenge Blog.  There's a video on how to do this technique on the challenge blog.  Here's my card for the challenge.

Crafty Colonel Donna Nuce for House of Cards Challenge blog, Stamp Punch Window technique, Stampin'Up Stamps and punch, Christmas Card.

As you can see the sentiments are recessed inside the punch hole.  It gives the card a unique look.  Hard to see but the ribbons are gold shiny  pen and I covered the ornaments with Wink of Stella. 

Come join us over at the House of Cards and play along with us!  Check out what the other Design Team members did with this technique!

Happy Crafting!

  3. I really like this one, cutting out the shapes and using the negative cuts rather than adding layers on top is a great idea. I love that you used up your bauble dies for this.

  4. Great card! Love the ornament-shaped windows!
