PUNCH Art card

Today's post is a CASE from Linda Aarhus, one of my favorite blogs to follow. She did a HUGE punch art series this summer that was fantastic, you can see her great punch art here that gave me the inspiration.
Isn't this the cutes ever? Who wouldn't want to make one.
So I did!

Here's mine.... This cute card I made for my brother to to write a note to say "THANKS"... for helping me out of a tight spot. Well not really a tight spot... but it was a big favor non the less. So it  fit for me.
I have looking and looking at the 'Totally Tools' set, but I don't have it yet with that exact sentiment... so I had to hand write it, but that's okay.

I used my circle punches and a few eyelets to adhere them to a strip of silver CS scored down the center to create the wrench. I popped it up on a piece of glossy copper CS I embossed with the square lattice emboss folder, then added the sentiment (hand written) on the Decorative Label piece.

Well it was pretty easy to do. Just a few punches and some distressing....... whaa la!

Great card Diane! Your brother is sure to appreciate it--who says masculine cards are difficult when you've got a great example like this?! Love the silver paper.

Adorable! I love the sentiment...so appropriate for the card! The embossing is the perfect touch!

Diane what an adorable card I really like the way you embossed the copper paper to look man-like and how clever to make the wrench, I know you've been itching to do more punch art-great job! The hand written sentiment makes it all the more special for a brother!

What a great card Diane. It's hard to find male appropriate images and ideas sometimes. You certainly did nail it this time...I guess wrench it this time would be better but it just doesn't sound right. Your brother is certain to enjoy your creativity.
