Another Paper Pierced Card...

Happy Sunday to you! I created another card today using the third template I ordered from "across the pond." This template is Erica Fortgens template EF8032 as shown here, and I also looked up the name of the corner punch I used. It's an EK Success Corner Adorner called Victorian Lace. You can see it here.

Here's the card, which was inspired by a sample in the Handmade Paper Pierced Cards book my Patricia Wing.


There were no dimensions given in the book for this card, so I winged it! I ended up making it a 6x6 inch card so I could be sure to have enough room for the corner piercing on the card base. I really like the swirls on this one. The center "jewel" is actually a button with the shank cut off. I got it at either Joann's or Walmart, the two stores where I seem to find the neat buttons. Today I added yellow Stickles to the flower buds. I used a good old fashioned pin to do the pricking.

I started another card, but I think I've used up my allotment of patience for the time being. I was having a hard time focusing and decided to quit before I really messed up. LOL

Oh my goodness... Another one!!! Beautiful!!! I so love the color combination. Every time I see reference to "the pond," In my first story for the UK, I made mention of "the pond" in the first sentence. For whatever reason,the president of the company took it out, spoiling my lead. I stuck it back in... Can't wait to see your next creation!!!

I am loving this paper piercing. It is the hot new technique in my card magazines. Great job!

How beautiful!! The color combo is so pretty, and I love all the detail you put into this. Are those seed beads near the base of the jeweled/stickled flower buds? You did a beautiful job with your piercing too -- very intricate design. ;)
