Woodware UK: Getting a Bit Punchy

How long has it been since you've got a bit punchy? Not that kind of punchy, but hauled out your punches and played? The Woodware UK team are doing just that this week. Considering just how many punches Woodware carries, it could be a difficult selection to choose just one or two. My choice? The two Super Duper Heart plain and the other scalloped. Ordinarily, most would use these two to create a sappy Valentine card, with the scalloped heart in white, and the inside heart in red or pink. Not me, but then you knew that, didn't you?

My card features Francois√© Read's Huge Happy Birthday Clear Magic design for Woodware UK, stamped on fun papers from g•c•d Studio's Daydream Ensemble. First on the main panel. Second on the punched heart. Third on the blue reverse side of one of the papers to match the scalloped heart. I did add a bit of coloring and shading with markers to make the design pop out a bit more. The extra letters were cut out, shaded and paper pieced to the heart. The layered piece was adhered to the main panel. A little bit of green ric rac from Woodware, and I'm done. A fun birthday card, created with fun images, and a bit punchy!

Be sure to visit the Woodware UK blog all of this week for more big ideas on punches, both big and small!
