Rosebud

Today's card was made using my new Rosebud  digi image , some black and white gingham paper and a couple of punches. I'm going to share with you a little tutorial of how I made it and the punches I used.

First of all, I coloured the image with Promarkers .



These are the two punches I used and I adapted the tutorial seen HERE  (by Becca) to suit the Xcut scallop border punch and made a little "frame". Then I ran the frame through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder.For this card I actually used the "negative" and kept the other bit for another card.

I kept the little cut out bits from the scallop punch and folded one in half to make the antennae for the butterfly.



Hope this inspires you to have a go with these punches!
