Mother's Day Class with the Two-Step Bird Punch

Well, the new Autum/Winter Mini Catalogue is just busting with great new products, but I have to say that my favourite item in it is the Extra Large Two-Step Bird Punch. What a fantastic, versatile and easy to use punch! I LOVE IT so much that I just had to prepare my Mother's Day Card Class based on it.

Here are the two cards (one for our mothers and one for our mothers-in-law) that the lovely ladies made on the night, plus the little tags that my seven-year-old daughter & I made for them as a 'thank you' for attending:

This first card is an easel card. To make it we also used the new Top Note die cut, crimper, scallop edge punch, large oval punch, scallop oval punch and the Word Window Punch, plus the new Teeny Tiny Snetiments (clear mount) stamp set. Colours were Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Very Vanilla.

The second card was also made using the Top Note Die and Word Window Punch. Very basic but very effective.

Finally, these were the tags that my daughter & I made. They were so easy to make that you honestly couldn't tell the difference between the ones I made & the ones she made.

You really don't need too much else when using this punch. You can really create so many different projects without using too many other products. I REALLY LOVE IT!!

Well, that's all from me. I hope you I've inspired you in some way (no matter how small) to create. Have fun!
