check out this cute little whale punch from Martha Stewart! i think it just screams "baby" card to me... and i *have* made a baby card with it, but for these cards, i broke out some blue/ teal, and yellow paper... and here i have a semi-sophisticated look using this darling punch. the first card is super simple--layered shapes, small strip of patterned paper, and two buttons with orange stickles in the middle (they sank into the holes when they dried).
and for this card, the ribbon, flower, and tiny bit of bling add to that sophisticated look on this card, eh? i LOVE the loops on this ribbon... perfect detail. i also added a few touches of orange stickles to the patterned paper to add some interest around the flowers.
i think i'll be breakout out this punch again (along with the scoll-like curvy square punch from McGill)... they make a great team! thanks for checking this out, i'll keep you posted with more cards soon :D
(also, my apologies to my blog readers et. al. for not commenting on your awesome cards lately, i'm actually out of the country... in Ecuador, for a church missions trip. fun stuff! just means i can't look at and "oooh" and "ahhh" over your beautiful creations. i'll make up for it later, promise!)
