Chervon Thanks

As soon as I saw the Chervon Border Punch in the Holiday catalog, I pictured ribbon running through the cut out. Of course, it can be used in many other ways but that was what my mind's eye saw to start with. I know I'll have fun discovering other ways of using this great punch!

I have just fallen in love with the Venetian Romance Designer Paper! My romantic side just loves the colors and patterns in this pack!

1. Use the corner rounder to round all 4 corners on the patterned paper. Lay it aside.
2. Punch the Chevron pattern in the Bermuda Bay cardstock. You might want to practice a bit the first time you use this punch. When I first used it, it took me a minute to realize how to line up the cardstock in order to get the punches correct. It's not really hard. It just requires a little more watching than some punches do.
3. Weave a 6" piece of ribbon through the center of the chevron design. Apply adhesive to the back sides of the  punch and to the ribbon. Press this to the left hand side of the patterned paper, leaving about 1/4" of patterned paper on the left.
4. Use the 2 different colored markers to apply ink to the stamp. Give the stamp a "huff" to moisturize the ink and stamp on white cardstock. Cut the flower out close to the stamp edges. Adhere it to the 2 x 3" Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Place that near the top right side of the paper.
5. Stamp the "thanks so much" greeting with Baked Brown Sugar ink. Cut it out. Adhere it to a small piece of brown cardstock. Cut to have about 1/8" brown border around the stamped greeting. Adhere it to the bottom right of the card.
6. Slide the arrow clip to the bottom right of the patterned paper. Be sure it is pointing the same direction as the chevron.
7. Apply adhesive to the back of the patterned paper and place it on the Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. Put all of this on to your card base.
