Punch Art birthday card

A few days ago Dawn Olchefske published a video tutorial on 'viewmaster cards' and it looked quite simple and fun so thought I'd try it out.  Of course I soon realised I didn't have any number stamps for my age wheel so had to die cut some and glue them through the whole - not so much fun!

The night before I had made a little creature - I think he's a teddy bear - so slowly it all came together, though the teddy evolved from an Old Olive one (which explains the Old Olive 1/2" circle under the brad!) so then I had to add a strip of the same colour at the bottom just to balance things out.... and yes, I'm rambling on again!

My biggest fan is my 4 year old and he DEFINITELY approves of this one, I can assure you it has been  thoroughly child-tested and nothing has fallen off so far - that's a relief!

What I used:

Card:  Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, White, Pool Party

Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip Marker

Stamp Sets:  Bold Birthday (retired)

Tools and other fun stuff: 1" circle punch, Ornament punch, Word Window punch, 1/2" circle punch, 1/4" circle punch
