Punch Cards

One of my customers asked if I could make cards using the two punches she recently purchased - the Curly Label Punch and Large Oval Punch and this is what I came up with.

The first card uses the Curly Label and Butterfly Punch. The only stamp set was Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment. I love the colors pink and brown together, so I used Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip cardstock for the Curly Label punch, some scrap pieces of Sending Love Specialty Designer Series Paper for the butterflies (from the Occasions Mini) and layered all of this onto Very Vanilla cardstock, added some Chocolate Chip ribbon to finish the card front which I then placed onto my card base using Kraft cardstock.
The second card uses the Large Oval, Large Star, Star, Word Window, and Modern Label Punch. The only stamp set was Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiment. I used Bashful Blue cardstock for the base of the card, Going Gray for the layer, Ballet Blue and Basic Gray for the oval punches, and mixed the colors for the star and word punches. So with a little bit of imagination you can make cards only using your punches.
Let me know what you think, and if you come up with some creative punch cards of your own I would love to see them.
