Embrace...

Punches! These tools are absolutely fabulous for making card making that little bit quicker. Punches can also provide you with options that wouldn't be so easy to come by using simple, but time consuming hand cutting techniques. There are so many cool shapes out there. I went with circles for this design. Using a nice vanilla card base, some chocolate paper, and some coordinating pattern paper, I had a card in minutes!

Supplies: Stamps: sushi set by a muse Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Au Chocolat

Very cool! Although it looks black & white here, I know that Au Chocolat is gorgeous paper! What a great idea!
