Belli Challenge #91 - hole punches
Welcome to Belli Challenge #91! Our challenge this week is to use hole punches. You could find your old punches that you used for setting eyelets way back when, you could punch tiny holes with a needle/pin/thumbtack for paper piercing, or you can use regular handheld punches to make holes for your brads to slip into. I chose to use my 1/16" handheld punch so I could add some brads to my card.
See that adorable little puppy? Our sponsor this week is Sew Many Cards, and they have tons of adorable digital images in their store. I used this Hershey with stocking image to make a Christmas card. I needed a little push to get started on my Christmas cards for this year, and here it is. :-)
The image is colored with Copic markers, and I used some retired Stampin Up holiday papers in the background. The sentiment has some brads on each side, and I also added some brads underneath the sentiment after punching the holes with my handheld hole punch. I used the TESC112 sketch from Taylored Expressions - perfect for the image and for adding some hole punches to my card!
Let's see what you create with hole punches this week. When you upload your card or project to a public gallery, please use keyword CBC91. Add your link to the end of the post on the Belli Blog so we can see your creation. You could win five FREE digital images from Sew Many Cards!
