Fresh Ideas

Having fun yet? Thanks for joining me! I am so excited you're back. This series is designed to help you dust off your tired 2012 paper crafting techniques, and show you fresh ideas for your card-making featuring paper from GCD Studios new 2013 collections.

Today's project features  a fresh idea for using a favorite project found in every paper crafter's stash; a punch, specifically a decorative photo corner punch. Featuring paper from Indian SummerI'm going to show you a fun way to use this punch to create a card that is full of bright and happy sunshine. Indian Summer has a beautiful muted color scheme with some fantastic prints that are perfect for any occasion. For today's card I wanted to make a sun-shiney card to brighten someone's day. 

Although, yellow is the main color, your don't want the card to appear flat by using too much color. After I trimmed sun and rays from Happiness and Ethnic Folk, and stitched them to the card. I used my photo corner punch to add depth to the card.

|1| Punch photo corners from Happiness and Ethnic Folk.

|2| Affix photo corners to the sunshine rays with foam tape, alternating patterned paper.

|3| Stamp sentiment on cardstock, trim and adhere to card with foam tape. Affix twine to card.

Don't be afraid to look at your favorite standard too in a new, fresh way! Experiment and play around with your tools, trying to find different ways you can use it.


Come back tomorrow for another fresh ideas for your cards. Until then, think about what could you do with a photo corner and all the GCD Studios paper you could get your hands on!
