I started this card yesterday and couldn't get it to where I liked it. I played with it some more today and decided to leave it as is. I did come up with another idea in the process, so that has me excited!
I created this card for a Fall Swap at SCS. I used the reverse punch technique illustrated by Heather (Pine) on her blog back in June. I loved her card from the moment I saw it and couldn't wait to use the same technique. I just picked up this new Fiskars Maple Leaf punch and thought it would be perfect!
I'm in a few more card swaps at SCS; however, I probably won't sign up for any more after finishing these. I've not received anything in return for the last two I've signed up for, so you can understand my disappointment. I'm hoping that these last three don't end up the same way.
