House of Cards Punches or Dies - Truly Grateful

This month's challenge at House of Cards is to use your *Dies or Punches* on your project. If you've been crafting for awhile, I bet you have a bunch of punches or dies that have been sitting around, maybe even a new one you haven't even gotten out of the get them out and on your cards!

On this card I used the Cheery Lynn English Tea Party Doily Die. As you can see there are a lot of bits to weed out, but I love the tiny cut outs and the pinholes. You can die cut card stock, but I prefer to use regular printer paper to match the thin, light feel of the store bought doilies.

For the bottom of the banners, I used a square punch to cut out the triangular pieces. Using the punch allows for a more uniform look.

Even the half circle is cut out using a Spellbinder's Nesties Circle die! (Cutting the doily and the circle in half made it easy to make a second card!)

This design makes it easy to use up scraps. Keep the card base, background paper and doily neutral and mix and match the papers for the banners and the half circle for quick cards.

We would love for you to stop by the House of Cards Challenge and see what the CAS designers have made!

And then, of course, link up your project, too!

Inky hugs,
