This is one of the cards that we made at my Hands-on Class last week.  We focused on Paper Piercing and using the new piercer, mat and templates.  The card idea comes directly from the catalog – it is based on the sample that they have on the page with the piercing tools.

I made a few changes – one was changing the orientation of the card.  There is piercing around the Apothecary Accents framelit – using the template in the Essentials pack.  There is piercing along the large scallop edglit – that’s also in the Essentials pack.  And then straight line piercing around the rest of the layered panel on the card.  All the piercing on this card uses the Essentials Paper-piercing pack.

The colors I used are So Saffron, Baja Breeze, Tangerine Tango and Always Artichoke.  I believe the catalog used Daffodil Delight in their example – I’m not sure why I used a different yellow – but I did.  It turned out to be a pretty card.


If you are a member of the Create with Connie & Mary Holiday edition class – my guest designer project posted today – I made a cute card set, matching envelopes and a surprise container to store them all in.  But you have to be a member to see it!  There are lots of great projects – a new one posted every day – and they all have step by step photo tutorials with them.  So go over there and join if you haven’t already…..  CLICK HERE.
