Elmo and Friends Punch Card

When I saw a similar version of this card on fellow demonstrator Nicky Foden's blog I had to try it myself. Making a card with punches just takes a little bit of creativity, and the possibilities are endless. I made my card the standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and with the exception of the eyes that I purchased at a local dollar store, everything else was made with a Stampin' Up punch.
Directions: For the card base I used Whisper White Cardstock #106529, and Basic Black cardstock #102851 measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" was layered on top of the white.
The squares that the characters layer onto measure 2" x 2", and the faces were made using the Scallop Circle Punch #109043.
For Elmo - the mouth is the 3/4" circle punch #107217 cut in half, the nose uses the full 3/4" circle punch. Colors - Real Red #102482, Basic Black #102581, Pumpkin Pie #105117 and the 2 x 2 square is Taken with Teal #101584.
For the Cookie Monster - 3/4" circle punch cut in half for mouth - Colors - Basic Black #102581, Taken with Teal #101584, 2 x 2 square is Old Olive #100702
For Oscar the Grouch- small oval punch #107304 cut in half for the mouth, 1/16" circle #101227 cut in half for the tongue, and I just cut two small triangles in basic black for the eyebrows. Colors used were Old Olive #100702, Basic Black #102581, Real Red #102482, YoYo Yellow #102824 for the 2 x 2 aquare.
Big Bird - 1/2" circle #104390 cut to make eyebrows, and I cut a small triangle for the nose. Colors used were YoYo Yellow #102824, Pumpkin Pie #105117, Taken with Teal #101584, and Real Red #102482 for the square.
Saying comes from the Build a Roo Stamp Set #115948 and Teeny Tiny Wishes #115370.

I hope you have fun creating your own punch cards!
