Technique Tuesday October Blog Hop Punches

It's time to get out the punches and have some fun with the October Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. Punches are so versatile and they are a great way to step up your projects. Our wonderful Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to get creative with your punches and see what you can creative with them. 
One of my favorite suites in the new September-December 2023 Mini Catalog is the Beary Christmas Suite Collection. I love that the Beary Cute Bundle has a punch and coordinating stamp set, plus the punch also coordinates with several of the designs in the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper. So of course, I had to use this suite to create my card design today. In addition to the Beary Cute Punch, I also used the Decorative Circle Punch for the background for the bear and the star punch from the Inked & Tiled Punch Pack to create the decorative ends for the sentiment label. This is such an easy card to create and I love how the designer series paper sets the scene for this holiday card.

This pretty Christmas card is easy to assemble and needs just a few simple supplies. I chose the designer series paper for the background and attached a piece of Balmy Blue Sparkle Ribbon around the top of the card front, attaching it to the back. I then attached the card front to the Balmy Blue card base. I punched out the bear from one of the designs of the Beary Christmas Designer Series Paper and attached it to the Balmy Blue decorative circle with Stampin' Dimensionals and then attached it to the bottom right corner of the card front. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with White embossing powder onto the Balmy Blue cardstock strip and then used the star punch from the Inked & Tiled Punch Pack to create the decorative ends. I attached the sentiment label to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals, centering it over the top of the ribbon. To complete the card design, I added two of the small, clear Adhesive Backed Glitter Sequins to the sentiment label. I love how this card design turned out and how each one of the punches I used help to create the finished design.
