Hi and welcome to another Monday morning Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.
Today's idea is to make your own borders and medallions using corner punches.
This is a close up of an oval that I punched around with the Martha Stewart snowflake border punch.
Make the first cut, by lining up the "V" on the punch with the edge of the paper. (See next picture)
Make the second punch by lining up both the left side opening AND the "V" at the edge of the paper.
Continue around the circle.
Continue lining up the left edges and the "V" at the bottom edge.
Here's the completed card using an oval I punched around with the same snowflake punch by Martha Stewart. The image is by Stampendous, Holiday Lamp. I colored with Copics. The oval behind the medallion is by Basic Gray, Wassail. I mounted the ovals on a piece of blue card stock that I had run through the Sizzix Snowflake folder, ran a white cat eye across the embossed areas and embossed with a pearl embossing powder. Mounted on white card stock. The 5.7 white card was stamped with a snowflake swirl stamp by Inkadinkado with Adirondack, Stonewashed. Added a red bow.
Here's some samples of other medallions I made using the punches shown. You can also make borders the same way.
Lots of variations with this technique and you can get another use out of your corner punches.
Hope you have a chance to try this. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Monday. Until later........
