Laurel Punch Around the Page Card #6

This is the last of the six cards I made right after I received the Laurel Punch Around the Page set.  It is another square card sized at 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.

The pink cardstock for the card base is Martha Stewart Pink Carnation from the Kitchen Garden cardstock pack.  The green is also from a large value pack of Martha Stewart cardstock - I am not sure the of the color name.  The patterned paper is from the Playful Pink and Green 12 x 12 pad and is a two sided paper.

I tried a version with rounded corners on the large patterned paper layer but I didn't care for the effect.

I also tried a version using the polka dot reverse side of the paper  for both layers but I didn't like that either!

The patterned paper on the five inch square punched  base  is 3 3/4 inches square and the paper on the top layer is 2 inches square.

I wanted to add a large epoxy brad with a cute baby bear image to the top layer so I used my clear layout ruler to help me find the center of the 2 inch square and poked a hole.  The brad is from the It's a Girl Felt Sticker and Brad Set from Creative Charms.

I added tiny epoxy circle stickers to the four corners of the top layer.  These are from the It's A Girl Epoxy Sticker Set from Creative Charms.

The center medallion is raised up with foam squares.  I inked the patterned paper edges with white ink but you can hardly tell in this photo.

The Laurel punch set works with so many types of cards- it will become a "go to" set for me and will give some of my other Punch Around the Page sets some competition!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing these cards over the past week.  I have lots more ideas about ways to use them that I hope to get to try soon.
