You're Special - Negative Punch craft

Hi crafters!

This is Shruti here.. back with another card for you guys!

Of late I have been in a mood to try something new everytime I sit down to make a card or a layout. I have seen numerous cards made with negative images from die-cuts. Since I do not own any die cut machine I thought of trying the same thing out with my circle punches.

I have used different colored buttons underneath.. you could also put some pattern paper instead or felt sheets even.. that would give your card a different look. :) This is a simple and a quick way to make a card in a hurry. Do try it out!
Supplies used:
> Pattern paper: Fancy Pants - Adorable - Wishful Thinking Double-Sided Paper 12"x12"
> Buttons
> Pearls
> Fabriano Card Stock
> Mulberry roses and handmade rose
> Glue & Scotch Double sided foam mounting tape
> Martha Stewart Branch leaf punch

Thats all folks!

Happy crafting!!
