CAS Wednesday-Punch-O-Rama

Hello Fellow Stampers and Welcome to 
CAS Wednesday
you know I love them and am delighted to share
PUNCHES!!!! They are so much fun and 
help make the simplest cards even simpler (is that even a word!?!??)

I know today is 4th of July so I wanted to wish you all a 
Happy Independence Day! 
Todays feature isn't very Red White and Blue 
but I still hope you enjoy.

Cardstock color choice for today is Regal Rose (#105130)
Chocolate Chip (#102128) and Whisper White (#124302).

I haven't done too many baby cards so here I selected 
Baby Bundle (w: #118525 c:#120576) with my stamp pads
and my 1 1/4" Square Punch (#119865) 
and Scalloped Square Punch(#119884)
** I find these punches are so handy to have around all year long**

I took a piece of Pretty in Pink Cardstock (#100459) and cut to 4 5/8" x 2 5/8" and 
placed into the Perfect Polka Dot Embosslit Folder (#117335) 
and ran through my Big Shot Die Cut machine (#113439).

Then I cut a piece of Whisper White to 3" x 5" and attached the 
Pretty in Pink card together.
I selected the smaller stamps and colored each by hand with my 
Handy Dandy Stampin Write Markers and used my 1 1/4" square punch (#119865)  
to layer them with a Chocolate Chip and Regal Rose 
Scalloped Square Punch(#119884).

Before I attached all my pieces to the  8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Regal Rose Cardstock 
(which I folded in half to create my card base)
 I wrapped a bow with my 5/8" Organza Ribbon (#114319)
and added the "Congratulations!" Sentiment by using 
the Large Oval Punch (#119855) and a Chocolate Chip Scallop Oval (#119856)

Done and the Labor for this card was under 5 Minutes! 
(giggle! giggle!)
