Christmas Punch Art

This Circle Thinlit card has no stamping on the front. Instead I used the wings of the Bird Builder punch to make the petals of my poinsettia and mounted them with Stampin' Dimensionals. I shortened the punched branches and tucked them beneath the  petals and added a button for my flower center. A little taffeta ribbon and some Season of Style designer paper finished it off. All I needed was the greeting from the Delightful Dozen stamp set and it was ready to go.

[The first photo shows the front of the card; the second is the open card.]

A tip for using the thinlits: To save paper, cut your card stock 5½" x 6" and line up with the thinlit. For my designer paper, I cut my strip 5½" x 3" and lined it up with the wide portion of the thinlit so the circle cuts would line up. I did have to trim a little off along the score line, but it helped the dsp to fit perfectly and enable the swing of the circle.
