Birthday Wishes!

This card features some more handmade flowers using the Martha Stewart punches.  The flowers and ferns and leaves are all made using various colors of vellum card stock.

Birthday Wreath

The lace square was cut using both the border and corner punches by Martha Stewart.  Then you use the corner punch again for the second punch inside of the first.  I found the tutorial for this on Pinterest.  It’s very simple.  What I did is punch the square (5 inches) then I marked on the reverse side about 1/4 inch in and used that to align the punch and have it exactly in the corner again.  The instructions can be found here, but you have to translate the page.  The sentiment is from MFT.

Thanks for looking!
