Aussie Christmas

Thanks to Vicki Hodges for today's punch art card idea! I have shamelessly CASEd your idea, Vicki, and three of us enjoyed making Christmas Koalas today at my craft class. There were a few tiny anxious moments when the pieces of the koalas were a little small and the hands a little shaky, but tweezers and persistence won out and we managed to make some adorable cards. Thanks for coming over to play today, Lesley and Jill!

Here's one of our completed cards:

We used loads of paper punches. And new designer series paper from the Christmas supplement. And Stampin' Write markers and a white gel pen. And the polka dot embossing folder.

What I like a lot is the versatility of the punches. The little claws were made with Star punched shapes, for example. And the noses were cut down Word Window punches. Let me know if you cannot figure out which punches we used and want to make this card yourself. Remember, you can always order your supplies from me at SusanSalutations.

 Christmas. It's getting closer! Hope you have started making your cards! I need to make heaps more!!
