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 Summer, I'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.

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.
