3x3 Note Cards

Here are some 3x3 note cards that I made recently. The idea for the tree card came to me a while back when a SUSOL demo was looking for Christmas ideas using the Three for You Punch Box. I wasn't able to make up the sample at the time because I had a bunch of stuff going on, but I've been wanting to post the idea for some time. I stamped the flowers with the Three for You set and punched them out with the punch from the punch box. I made them dimentional by placing each flower into the palm of my hand and pressing into the center with the end of my watercolor paintbrush. An orange stick works great, too.

The scallop on the second card was made using a corner punch with the corner guard removed. I used the older SU! corner punch, since I didn't have the new one yet when I made this card. The leaves were made by punching out a green flower, then cutting the petals in to a point at the center. I turned them so the rounded side is hidden by the flower and the pointed side is out. You could just as easily free- hand cut the leaves.

The third card was made using the Cutie Pie DSP from the SU! catalog. The only stamping is the Thank You circle from the Seeing Spots set. The middle flower was punched from the paper using the 3 flower punch from the Three for You punch box. The scallop circle punch is from SU!

Sorry for the fuzzy photos. It's the best I can do with the camera I have to work with for now. We are looking into new cameras. If anyone wants to e-mail me with advice or recomendations, it would be appreciated! inkerbel@hotmail.com.

Tomorrow I'll show an improved version of the tree card. I know it's a little plain- I just wanted to post the basic version, so you get the general idea.
