Birthday Card

I made this birthday card yesterday using my new Martha Stewart 'around the page' punch. She has several
designs that are a two-step process. It comes with a corner punch and an edge punch. There is a little learning curve to get it right. At first I wrecked a few pieces of paper and then decided I needed a video tutorial. I found a good one online to watch and then it made sense. You have to start with paper just the right size to have it punch evenly all the way around. The sizes are 3 1/4", 5", 6 3/4", 8 1/2", 10 1/4" and 12" square. You can use other measurements larger but must increase always by 1 3/4 inches for it to work evenly all around the page. I love using Martha punches as they make the cards look so classy. Tomorrow I have to work on a few more cards so will post them another time. Have a blessed evening.


  1. That is so pretty, Deb. I think you should take that paper and punch outdoors and work on cards next to your lake. That's what folding tables are for. :-)

  2. Now you have the right idea...I may try that sometime. :D

  3. Girl you are making these cards like no bodies business. As usually good job! Love the punch alot. I could of used that for Manna's graduation invites. You could help the "dream" team make cards for Hallmark. Wouldn't that be fun :)
