Lime and Turquoise

Today's cards show the Tonic Studios Multi Detail Butterfly, Daisy Border punch  and Daisy Strip punch together with a few ideas to use up your leftover punched pieces.

The card on the left has a little two tone border down the left side which I made by interweaving the two strips which were left when I punched out the borders.

For the card on the right I have used the Daisy Border punch as shown HERE to make a circle and I've used the little flowers and dots to create a shaker card.

Another thing I love about the Daisy Strip /Border is that it is great for stitching. I've simply stitched through the holes with white embroidery thread to create a different look.

Don't forget that there is a giveaway on Blog Tonic at the moment for a set of Petal Pairs Petites. These are amazing punches and if you nip over to the blog you'll see lots of examples of how they can be used.
