It's Wheely Swiss Cheese

Happy National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day. Yes, it is. And this, well this is a very sad attempt at a swiss cheese interpretation but I think, not a bad looking card.

As you might have guessed from the heading - I used some Stampin' UP! wheels here.......and many punches.

On So Saffron CS I wheeled the Leaves a la Carte on the inside in Old Olive and Speckled was wheeled on the outside in More Mustard. Then I punched out 1/2", 3/4", and 1" circles from the front of the card. It looked a little plain, so I punched donuts, or frames if you want to call them that, out of Old Olive CS. It still looked a little plain so I punched some more 1/2" circles out of More Mustard CS and edged them with Chocolate Chip ink. I also edged the More Mustard scallop with Choc. Chip. The flower was put together using all those colors and the leaves are Old Olive ovals (say that 3 times fast!) folded in half first and then sent throught the paper crimper. The ribbons are 5/8" Choc. Chip. grosgrain and Old Olive Twill.

The sentiment in the upper right is from the BoHo Backgrounds stamp set - and to be honest, it's there because it's covering a smudge!

Now, if you're going to make a card like this the only drawback is that you can only write on the upper half of the inside unless you want to see your writing through the punched holes.
