A Card Using Geometric Shapes

This is a card I made to enter in the SOS (Shop Our Stash) Challenge. The theme for this challenge is to make a card using geometric shapes.

Used from my stash:
DCWV  Blossoms & Butterfly Stack designer paper
Sizzix Flourish, Floral w/Leaves die
Assorted pink papers from my scraps
Ribbon from my quilting stash
Sentiment & scalloped oval (I did hundreds of these last winter when I was bored)

This card, using circles, isn't a card I would mass produce but.......I did use my Stampin Up Owl Punch in a rather unique way and I thought I would show you how to make these little circles.

I used a strip of scrap paper and inserted it in the owl punch so the two teeny tiny circles were at the top edge of the paper strip. Punch these.

Remove the strip and reinsert it into the owl punches large circles. See how you adjust the placement of the paper in the punch so the teeny tiny holes are a bit off center. Punch these.

This photo is a bit fuzzy but you can see the finished double punched circles. For this card  I used all of the sizes of circles on the owl punch and a 1/2" circle punch also.

When I made this card I removed the lower rectangular piece and cut of the scalloped edge. I can see on the photo that I didn't get the corner glued down enough before taking the pic.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Comments are always welcome.
