Friday tutorial.

Hello dear friends on this beautiful Friday night!

Lots of info below!

TIP OF THE DAY! Fisker Punches. I used my new punch  today called: Craft Punch, Border Corner, Quilted Corners! My card below was made using  it. This is the most awesome punch I have ever used. It goes around the complete page, the corners are quilted and it is as easy as pie. So easy to line your paper...I could teach my young grandchildren to use it.

The punch has two levers. One for the corners and another for the border. See the ridges to the left of the levers.
Place your paper under both levers.

slide you paper to the next  ridge and only push the border lever

4 x 4 you only punch the border one time.   5 x 5  two times.  Turn your paper to the next corner and punch both levers.
Continue until completed
Isn't it beautiful? No guessing, measuring, perfect alignment. See my card below!

I was requested to make a 50th wedding anniversary card and this is what I came up with. I love it and taught myself some more things! Like you need special tape for Velum because reg tape or glue shows right through it. 
Layers: White card stock, gold foil paper, white card stock with fiskar border punch and embossed with Cuttlebug. A gold doily and computer generated sentiment on gloss paper and dry embossed.  Flowers were purchased at Michales Craft store in the wedding department and I took them apart. See pictures below again!
  Finally the end!!! Hope you love it like I do!
